Abstract
Analysis of passive mode-locking for lasers with Kerr intracavity nonlinear elements has been presented. Nonlinear diffraction losses, which result from the transverse beam size changes produced by self- focusing, has been determined. The transient evolution and the stability regime of a stationary pulse have been investigated. We have obtained an expression of the pulse duration as a function of the laser system parameters: the refractive index nonlinearity, the intracavity aperture size, the linear diffraction loss, and so on. Optimum conditions for the shaping of ultrashort pulses have been found.
