Ultrashort pulse generation in a solid medium with long-lived spin coherence Academic Article uri icon


  • Two things make the mechanism of ultrashort pulse generation particularly attractive. First, it provides a unique combination of extremely short duration of generated pulses with very high pulse duty factor. Second, it can be realized in simple, compact, and convenient solid materials such as rare-earth doped dielectrics and, hence, can find many practical applications.
