Abstract

Our calculation shows that, by means of group-velocity dispersion of an optical fiber, a cw frequency-modulated signal evolves into an intense and sharp pulse. The results compare favorably with an earlier analysis of a narrowband FM system. In particular, the minimum fiber length needed for maximum FM–AM conversion may be considerably reduced.
