Abstract

A stationary rescaled pulse (SRP) exists in a dispersion-managed comblike profiled fiber (DM-CPF) that consists of alternate concatenations of normal-dispersion highly nonlinear fiber and single-mode fiber. Numerical analysis reveals that the newly found SRP exhibits a nearly Gaussian temporal profile with a small amount of pedestal in spite of a relatively large compression ratio. We apply the SRP propagation to optical pulse compression based on DM-CPF and demonstrate highly efficient and high-quality optical pulse compression. Using a three-step DM-CPF, we experimentally show that a 2.6ps width input pulse is successfully compressed to a nearly Gaussian pulse having the width of 0.39ps and the peak-to-pedestal ratio of 19.3dB.
