Abstract

A fundamentally mode-locked soliton Er-fiber laser generating 167 fs pulses at 194 MHz via polarization additive-pulse mode locking is demonstrated. This simple, compact, and high repetition rate source exhibits a low timing jitter of 18 fs [ 1 kHz , 10 MHz ] and the lowest relative intensity noise of less than 0.003% [ 1 kHz , 10 MHz ] observed from an Er-fiber laser.
