: Femtosecond laser pulses came of age and found applications in many fields of life-sciences that call for dispersion-managed guiding of very short optical pulses. We investigate the potential for delivering 25-fs, nanojoule pulses from a Ti:Sapphire laser through optical fibers with lengths of up to 2m.
