The positive chirp, or dispersion, introduced by most optical media in ultrafast systems can be compensated for using optical components, such as highly-dispersive mirrors, that feature negative dispersion. This gives short wavelengths a higher phase velocity than that of long wavelengths, which balances out the positive chirp and compresses the pulse duration.
