Mid-infrared few-cycle pulse generation with a Ho:ZBLAN fibre laser

R. I. Woodward, D. D. Hudson, A. Fuerbach, S. D. Jackson: Mid-infrared few-cycle pulse generation with a Ho:ZBLAN fibre laser. Australian and New Zealand Conference on Optics and Photonics (ANZCOP 2017), 2017, (Paper 115).

Abstract

We demonstrate a simple and compact route to few-cycle pulse generation from mid-infrared fibre lasers through nonlinear compression with step-index As2S3 fibre and a grating pair, achieving 73 fs pulses (7.6 optical cycles) at 2.86 µm.
