Abstract
Active mode locking is reported of a hybrid fibre laser using a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) as an active medium synchronously pumped with electric pulses. For the first time it was demonstrated that the shape and structure of generated optical pulses can be manipulated by appropriate shaping of electric pumping pulses. The proposed hybrid SOA/fibre cavity topology features relatively high mode-locked generation efficiency in combination with compact cavity dimensions and spectral universality of the laser. Further ways to advance mode-locked lasers relying on hybrid SOA/fibre topology are discussed.
