Abstract

A novel adjustable adiabatic soliton compression scheme is presented, enabling a coherent pulse source with pedestal-free, few-cycle pulses in the infrared or midinfrared regime. This scheme relies on interaction of a dispersive wave and a soliton copropagating at nearly identical group velocities in a fiber with enhanced infrared transmission. The compression is achieved directly in one stage, without the necessity of an external compensation scheme. Numerical simulations are employed to demonstrate this scheme for silica and fluoride fibers, indicating ultimate limitations as well as the possibility of compression down to the single-cycle regime. Such output pulses appear to be ideally suited as seed sources for parametric amplification schemes in the midinfrared.

(a) Refractive index of a microstructured fiber (ESM fused silica) and a ZBLAN fluoride fiber. (b) Corresponding relative group delay β1 with adequate resonant frequency combinations (see text). The ZBLAN fiber allows center frequencies for solitons at far separation from the ZDW.

XFROG spectrogram at (a) 0.2 cm, (b) 10 cm, (c) 20 cm, and (d) 30 cm for the collision of a DW at the refractive index barrier created at the leading edge of a FS. The optical event horizon appears as a vertical line moving with the center frequency shift of the soliton.

(a) Induced evolution of relative soliton peak power for different peak powers of the DW in the ESM fiber. Ratios between the DW and soliton peak power are PDW/PS=0.3, 0.5, 1. (b) Relative soliton peak power evolution in the ZBLAN fiber for PDW/PS=0.4, 0.7, 1. (c) Corresponding evolution of the relative soliton pulse width in the ESM fiber. (d) Corresponding relative soliton pulse width evolution in the ZBLAN fiber. Calculations with the impact of the Raman effect are performed for PS=PDW (thin black lines).

Pulse compression of a soliton close to the single-cycle regime. (a) Electric field of the initial soliton, (b) calculated output electric field, (c) spectral evolution of propagation dynamics, (d) corresponding time domain evolution of the intensities in the comoving frame of the soliton for the scenario shown in the thick black line in Fig. 3(a). (e) Initial electric field and (f) output field for the optimal compression factor in the transmission region of the ZBLAN fiber 800–4500 nm for the scenario in the thick black line in Fig. 3(b).
