    There is presented a method of for generating a compressed optical pulse (112) comprising emitting from a wavelength tunable microcavity laser system (102), comprising an optical cavity (104) with a mechanically adjustable cavity length (L), a primary optical pulse (111) having a primary temporal width (Tl) while adjusting the optical cavity length (L) so that said primary optical pulse comprises temporally separated photons of different wavelengths, and transmitting said pulse through a dispersive medium (114), so as to generate a compressed optical pulse (112) with a secondary temporal width (T2), wherein the secondary temporal width (T2) is smaller than the primary temporal width (T1).
