Abstract

Third-order dispersion in femtosecond solid-state lasers can induce a resonant transfer of energy from the mode-locked pulse into a dispersive background. The presence of intensity-dependent self-amplitude modulation can compensate for this loss. A condition for energy balance between these two effects is evaluated and related to the stability of femtosecond pulse generation.
