1 MHz Akinetic Dispersive Ring Cavity Swept Source at 850 nm

Article English OPEN
Toadere, Florin; Stancu, Radu.-F.; Poon, Wallace; Schultz, David; Podoleanu, Adrian G.H.;

A fast dual mode-locked akinetic optical swept source at 850 nm central wavelength is presented using a dispersive cavity. We demonstrate that single mode fiber can be successfully used as dispersive element to induce mode locking. A first locking condition is imposed b... View more
