Abstract

We present what we believe is a new method to introduce self-imaging properties under dispersive transmission of single or multiple light pulses with different temporal characteristics. By properly performing a temporal filtering into a given input signal it can produce an output signal having a spectral content satisfying the Montgomery condition, thereby allowing self-imaging of this signal under further dispersive transmission. An array of fiber loops performs the filtering operation on the input signal. We show some numerical simulations with a single light pulse as an input signal to verify the feasibility of the method and demonstrate the effects of the several involved parameters on both the pulse shape and the noise level.
