The cover shows the first ever observation of mode locking dynamics inside the femtosecond laser as it occurs in real-time. The feat was enabled by Photonic Time Stretch technology pioneered in Jalali-Lab. Such lasers are the gold standard in time and frequency standards and the workhorse of precision measurements.
Prof. Jalali’s work in collaboration with U. Gottingen in Germany appeared on the cover of Nature Photonics-5/2016.
