Ultrahigh-speed fiber lasers operating at up to 40 GHz offer a clean longitudinal comb and a narrow linewidth. This makes them suitable for applications including optical comb generation, ultrahigh-speed optical pulse transmission including PSK, and as opto-microwave oscillators. In this paper, we describe recent progress on ultrafast fiber lasers and their applications to optical metrology.
