Abstract

An experimental observation of self-phase-modulation-induced spectral broadening and coherence-time shortening of incoherent pulses in single-mode optical fibers is reported for the first time to our knowledge. Reduction of the field correlation time by a factor greater than 2.5 was observed in both normal and anomalous dispersive regimes.
