Abstract

We present a laser system capable of producing 190 femtosecond pulses at a repetition rate of 20 GHz. The spectral masking of a phase modulated diode laser is used to produce a train of picosecond pulses which are compressed using a fibre-grating compressor followed by subsequent adiabatic soliton compression to the femtosecond regime using a tapered photonic crystal fiber.
