Abstract

We show that a reduction in the pulse distortion caused by chromatic dispersion can be achieved through pulse shaping. We argue that a simple binary phase mask in the Fourier plane of the laser spectrum can improve the transmission of short pulses in a dispersive channel through reduced broadening. The argument was tested experimentally, and a good agreement was found with the theory.
