The Revolution in Femtosecond Near-infrared Pulse Generation
W. H. Knox
Revolution or just plain old evolution? In the field of
femtosecond optical pulse generation, rapid changes
have been taking place in the last year. Is it ultrafast
evolution? While not on the same scale as the changes i n the
former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, researchers in the
field everywhere have had a hard time trying to keep track
of and keep up with the pace of new developments. In this
article, we would like to track the progress in the field of
femtosecond optical pulse generation in the near infrared
and discuss the current state of the art.
