A new scheme for travelling-wave excitation of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) employing transversal pumping is presented. ASE pulses emitted in the forward direction had a duration of 6 ps, corresponding to one half of the pump pulse duration. The spectrum was strongly structured, with individual components having a width of 0.1-1.0 Å. Essential characteristics of longitudinal and transversal excitation of travelling wave ASE are compared.
