Abstract

A 10-GHz train of nearly transform-limited 54-fs soliton pulses was generated by adiabatic compression of the output of a mode-locked fiber laser with a polarization-maintaining dispersion-flattened dispersion-decreasing fiber. The peak-to-pedestal ratio exceeded 23  dB. At high input powers, the pulse width was reduced to as short as 43  fs, although the wings of the pulse were degraded and the jitter increased. The compression properties are different for the two polarization axes, owing to their different dispersion characteristics. The output polarization exhibits no drift.
