Abstract

An asymptotic method for synthesis and analysis of optical pulses using Hermite–Gaussian functions is outlined. This enables distortion of arbitrary pulse waveforms in monomode fibers to be studied analytically, even with chirping of the light source. This pulse-modeling technique is proposed to be particularly suitable for the synthesis of analytically tractable representations of realistic pulse shapes, providing a flexible and effective platform for analytic system optimization.
