Abstract

Highly efficient conversion (as great as 60%) into the broad first Stokes Raman band around 1.4 μm of the 90-psec pump pulses from a cw mode-locked Nd:YAG laser at 1.32 μm has permitted, through a solitonlike compression mechanism in a single span of standard (λ0 = 1.3 μm) single-mode optical fiber, the generation of highly stable pulses of ∼100 fsec, with average powers of ∼30 mW in the solitary waves, which depend on fiber length and pump power.
