Abstract

By optimizing the intracavity dispersion compensation in a self-mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser, we have generated pulses of 10.95-fs duration. Dispersion within the laser cavity is reduced by use of a short 4.5-mm highly doped Ti:sapphire crystal and fused-silica prisms. The output from the laser has an average power of as much as 500 mW, with a wavelength centered at 780 nm and a bandwidth of 62 nm. Our results demonstrate that the exceptionally broad bandwidth of Ti:sapphire can be utilized to generate pulses that, to our knowledge, are shorter than has been possible with any other type of laser material to date.
