Pulse elongation with known GDD

For given GDD, dispersed pulse length \( \Delta t \) is related to the initial pulse length \( \Delta t_0 \) as $$\Delta t = \Delta t_0 \sqrt{1 + \left (4 \ln 2 \frac{\mathrm{GDD}}{\Delta t_0^2}\right)^2}.$$ For fixed GDD, the shortest dispersed pulse is equal to \( \Delta t = \sqrt{2} \Delta t_0 \), when \( \Delta t_0 = 2\sqrt{\ln 2 \cdot \mathrm{GDD}}. \)
