Abstract

An extensive one-dimensional laser model based on dispersion managed mode locking is presented that accurately describes the pulse dynamics of octave-spanning titanium:sapphire lasers generating sub-two-cycle pulses. By including detailed characteristics for the intracavity elements (mirrors and output coupler), it is demonstrated that the spectral output and temporal pulse shape of these lasers can be predicted quantitatively in very good agreement with experimental results.
