Abstract
A theoretical modeling of the dynamics of mode locking taking into account the effects of dispersion and detuning applied to the study of pulse evolution inside the FM mode locked Ti:sapphire laser is presented. We note that a considerable change in the pulsewidth and pulse evolution time is brought about by dispersion and detuning. Typically pulsewidths of around ten's of picoseconds is conceivable in systems where dispersion and detuning are well within desired values. The pulse evolution time varies depending on the values of the dispersion and detuning and is typically found to be around 200 microsecond(s) ec.
