Abstract

The paper presents a novel technique for intracavity group-delay dispersion (GDD) control. A new physical concept is demonstrated, which can be exploited for broadband and essentially high-order-dispersion-free GDD control with specifically designed multilayer dielectric mirrors. Demonstrated is the performance achievable with a mirror-dispersion-controlled (MDC) broadband femtosecond laser oscillator. The feasibility of a high-repetition-rate femtosecond Kerr-lens mode-locked laser technology is discussed. The performance of a MDC self-mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser with that of its prism-controlled forerunner is compared.
