The Revolution in Femtosecond Near-infrared Pulse Generation

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.
