Abstract

Nonlinear spatiotemporal dynamics of femtosecond pulses in a hexagonal seven-core silica fiber pumped by a sub-μJ 370 fs Er:fiber chirped pulse amplification (CPA) system were studied. Nonlinear pulse shaping and compression in the central core and pedestal coupling to the outer cores were directly measured by frequency-resolved optical gating. Further compression of the pulses spectrally broadened in the multicore fiber down to 53 fs was demonstrated. Two orders of magnitude contrast enhancement of the pulses after compression was observed.
