Abstract

We propose a simple and stable pulse compression scheme based on a filtering self-phase modulation broadened spectrum in a highly nonlinear fiber. It is found experimentally that under offset filtering the compressed pulse has a better quality compared with center filtering, such as a no pulse pedestal. Furthermore, numerical simulations reveal that the scheme has the potential to improve the pulse extinction ratio during compression. Finally, based on the obtained pulse train the 4 × 10 Gbits∕s optical time-division multiplexing system is studied for verification of the high pulse quality. The compression scheme has the advantages of simple configuration, being pedestal-free, and having a high pulse extinction ratio.
