Abstract

Chirped optical pulses with time-bandwidth products of more than 7000 and energies of approximately 5 nJ have been produced in a diode-pumped erbium-doped fiber laser. The large chirp was achieved using pulsed active modelocking in a long cavity with net normal dispersion. The experimental results were supported by numerical simulations used to model the temporal dependence of the pulse intensity and chirp.
