Abstract

Using a single phase modulator and dispersive fiber, we demonstrate a 12-dB reduction in the phase noise of a train of 6.5-ps pulses at a repetition rate of 10 GHz. A prechirp fiber is shown to improve performance.

Theoretical calculations of the best possible jitter reduction for a given input and output pulse width made using one phase modulator with M=0.6π and M=3π. The input pulse is transform limited, but the output pulse is not necessarily transform limited. Solid curves, best noise reduction with prechirp and postchirp fiber; dashed lines, best noise reduction with only postchirp fiber. The star corresponds to the experimental results in Fig. 2.
