Abstract

The broadband wavelength tunability of femtosecond pulse generation using a Mach–Zehnder-modulator-based flat-comb generator (MZ-FCG) and a dispersion-flattened dispersion-decreasing fiber (DF-DDF) was demonstrated. Near-Fourier-transform-limit picosecond pulses generated from the MZ-FCG were compressed into femtosecond pulses by adiabatic soliton compression. By tuning the wavelength of the input cw light, 200fs, 10GHz pulses were generated in the wavelength range of 1535to1570nm. Such wide-range wavelength tunability was realized by both the independence of a comb-flattening condition from the inputted wavelength and the dispersion flatness of the DF-DDF.
