Abstract
A new self-consistency condition in pulsed lasers with strong intracavity d ispersion imposes dispersion modes with specific cavity-length dependent pu lse rates, utilizing pulse-train self-imaging properties of a temporal Talb ot 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. (C) 2000 Optical Society of America.
