Abstract

We report compression of low-power femtosecond pulses at 1.06μm in a dispersion-decreasing holey fiber. Near-adiabatic compression of 130fs pulses down to 60fs has been observed. Measured spectra and pulse shapes agree well with numerical simulations. Compression factors of ten are possible in optimized fibers.
