We have recently reported on the generation of pulses as short as 1.2 ps from a mode-locked erbium fibre laser pumped by a frequency doubled NdYAG laser. Experimental and theoretical evidence strongly supported the idea that soliton pulse shaping played a dominant role in the short pulse formation. In this paper, we review this earlier work and present preliminary data from a simple, compact totally integrated erbium fibre soliton laser pumped by a high-power laser diode.
