Abstract

The effects of initial frequency chirp and Raman scattering on soliton-effect pulse compression are investigated. We show that Raman scattering causes a significant degradation in the compression of high-order soliton pulses. A 24% reduction is found in the compression ratio of soliton pulses of 1-ps width and order N = 15. We also show that positive chirp enhances the compression and the breakup of high-order soliton pulses, whereas negative chirp degrades the compression and retards the breakup of those pulses. These effects become more pronounced as the soliton order is increased.

Figures (3)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Ratio of the optirnally compressed pulse width to the initial pulse width as a function of soliton order for C = −3.0 [curve (a)], C = 0 [curve (b)], and C = +3.0 [curve (c)]. Note that in curve (a) for N = 2 no compression was obtained, as the initial negative chirp has destroyed the soliton properties serties of that pulse.

Ratio of the optimally compressed pulse width to the initial pulse width as a function of soliton order with SRS [curve (a)] and without SRS [curve (b)].

Fig. 3

Evolution of a 1-ps sixth-order (N = 6) soliton in a fiber with SRS with initial chirp of (a) C = −3.0 and (b) C = +3.0.
