Soliton pulse compression in dispersion decreasing fibre

By S.V. Chernikov, D.J. Richardson, E.M. Dianov and D.N. Payne

Abstract

We investigate the adiabatic compression of picosecond and subpicosecond soliton pulses from all-fiber, passively mode-locked, erbium-doped fiber soliton lasers operating at 1550 nm in dispersion-decreasing fibers (DDF's). High-quality soliton compression from 630 down to 115 fs in a 100-m DDF and from 3.5 down to 230 fs in a 1.6-km DDF is obtained. The effects of third-order dispersion and Raman self-scattering on the compression process are observed and discussed
