Abstract

A new self-consistency condition in pulsed lasers with strong intracavity dispersion imposes dispersion modes with specific cavity-length dependent pulse rates, utilizing pulse-train self-imaging properties of a temporal Talbot effect. We give an experimental demonstration of such a laser operation, using a long fiber cavity. We also demonstrate temporal Talbot imaging of a train of short pulses that propagate along large distances of dispersive fibers.
