Abstract

We have conducted detailed experimental investigations of the intensity-related dynamics of the pulse repetition and carrier-envelope offset frequencies of passively mode-locked Ti:sapphire lasers. The results for two different laser systems are compared, which utilize different intracavity dispersion compensation schemes. Theoretical interpretations agree well with the experimental data, and it is found that an intensity-related spectral shift is important in understanding the dynamics of the frequency comb. Minimization of this spectral shift leads to minimization of the intensity dependence of the carrier-envelope offset frequency.
