Abstract

We report, for the first time to our knowledge, direct spectral measurements of nonlinear spectral broadening caused by nonlinear propagation through Bragg gratings written on integrated AlGaAs waveguides. The spectral broadening is associated with pulse compression from 400 to 80 ps. The high nonlinearity of AlGaAs enables high-repetition-rate, low-peak-power sources to be used, facilitating easy spectral measurements.
