Abstract

15-THz trains of a few-tens-of-femtoseconds optical pulses were generated by modulation instability oscillation in a colliding-pulse mode-locked dye laser. A repeatable and stable modulation instability regime was obtained with the laser operating in the anomalous-dispersion regime and with a low saturable-absorber concentration. Autocorrelation measurements indicate that subpulses were completely separated in real time. Variations of the modulation with the pump power and the amount of dispersion in the cavity are in good agreement with modulation instability theory.
