Ultrafast Lasers

Lasers emitting ultrashort pulses.

The term ultrafast lasers is often used for mode-locked lasers emitting ultrashort pulses, i.e., Pulses with durations of femtoseconds or picoseconds. A more precise term is actually ultrashort pulse lasers. These are nearly always mode-locked lasers, although e.g. Gain SWITCHING can also provide ultrashort pulses.
