Abstract

Soliton-self-frequency shift in fibers with a precisely controlled dispersion is shown to enable efficient spectral broadening and temporal compression of light fields to few-cycle pulse widths. Anomalously dispersive fibers with positive third-order dispersion can transform nano- and subnanojoule 100200fs laser pulses into smoothly wavelength-tunable and spectrally broadened solitons with a pulse width as short as two to five field cycles. This regime of soliton pulse transformation is ideally suited for the creation of compact frequency-tunable fiber sources as well as for ultrabroadband optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification with an optical synchronization between the pump and seed fields.

Temporal envelopes of the fiber output are presented in the insets.

Spectral transformation of a laser pulse with W 0 = 0.3 nJ and τ 0 = 100 fs in a fiber with λ z = 850 nm , β 3 = 4 × 10 4 ps 3 m , and β 4 = 10 6 ps 4 m . The spectrum of the input laser pulse is shown in the upper panel. The inset shows the pulse envelope at z = 30 cm for a fiber with λ z = 850 nm and the input pulse width τ 0 = 100 fs with (solid curve) W 0 = 0.5 nJ , β 3 = 5 × 10 5 ps 3 m , and β 4 = 10 7 ps 4 m and (dashed curve) W 0 = 0.3 nJ , β 3 = 4 × 10 4 ps 3 m , and β 4 = 10 6 ps 4 m .
