    We employed various low-cost dispersion compensation methods to generate femtosecond pulses from a Kerr-lens mode-locked (KLM) Cr:ZnSe laser operating near 2400 nm. Prism pairs made of CaF and MgF and slabs of BK7 and YAG were tested. Pulses as short as 92 fs were obtained when a CaF prism pair...

    Single mode lasing from the polydimethylsiloxane based on-chip coupled optofluidic ring resonator (OFRR) with the lasing threshold of a few μJ/mm2 is demonstrated using the Vernier effect. The single mode operation is highly stable even at high pump energy densities. The effect of the OFRR...
