This comprehensive volume provides a survey of the many innovations in the field of ultrashort pulse generation, and reviews the state of the art in compact, modelocked laser systems, discussing both their operational principles and potential applications. The theory of short optical pulse generation by modelocking is covered in the first chapter. Thereafter, modelocking techniques in different types of lasers are discussed: solid state lasers; diode-pumped lasers; fiber lasers; surface emitting semiconductor lasers; external cavity semiconductor lasers; hybrid soliton pulse sources; and monolithic colliding pulse modelocked diode lasers. Presenting both theoretical and experimental aspects throughout, this book will be invaluable to anyone interested in short pulse laser systems, and particularly to researchers involved in high-speed communications or the investigation of ultrafast phenomena.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'I highly recommend this text. It provides an excellent compact reference and a wealth of background material which should be indispensable to the expert and novice alike, while each chapter can be treated alone or considered as an integral part of this active research and development area.' J. R. Taylor, Journal of Modern Optics
"It is a particularly valuable addition to the literature since it addresses the discipline from both theoretical and practical modeling slants. Researchers, engineers, graduate and post-graduate students involved in high-speed communications or the investigation of ultrafast phenomena will find that this book presents a worthwhile review of the state of the art in modelocked laser systems." M.F. Mahmood, Optics & Photonics News
"...each chapter is clearly and authoritatively written....The level of presentation is such that the book should be accessible to readers new to the field as well as established workers, and as this book represents the only collection of recent work in the areas covered currently available, it will undoubtedly be of value to many graduate students, researchers, and engineers." Martin Guy, Optical Engineering
