Similariton Compression in a Comb like Dispersion Decreasing Fibre

Abstract :

Optical pulse compression using similariton propagation in an optical fibre with decreasing dispersion has been demonstrated for the first time. This compression scheme is a practical application of the sech-similariton solution to the generalized nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLSE) with distributed coefficients recently found using the self-similarity technique. The sech-similariton solution exhibits a characteristic positive linear frequency chirp, which increases in slope as the pulse compresses. The solution does not develop any side pedestals or deformation in pulse shape as it propagates, making it a promising candidate for a new compression technique. Unlike the adiabatic compression technique, rapid compression can be achieved in a fibre with a specifically designed decreasing group velocity dispersion profile since the sech-similariton is an exact solution to the NLSE.
