Since the first realization of modelocking of a ruby laser in 1965, ultrafast laser technology has made tremendous progress. Today, laser pulses as short as
6 fsec can be generated with dye laser based systems. Yet, from our point of view, the progress is not just in the availability
of short laser pulses, but also in the reliability and
stability of today's laser systems, which in some cases can be comparable to that of cw lasers.
