Enhanced spectral compression in nonlinear optical fibres

Boscolo, Sonia and Finot, Christophe (2016). Enhanced spectral compression in nonlinear optical fibres. IN: 2016 18th International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks (ICTON). Ferrari, M.; Dorosz, D. and Marciniak, M. (eds) ITA: IEEE.

Abstract

We propose two new approaches to enhance the spectral compression process arising from nonlinear pulse propagation in an optical fibre. We numerically show that an additional sinusoidal temporal phase modulation of the pulse enables efficient reduction of the intensity level of side lobes in the spectrum. Another strategy is to select a regime of propagation in which normal group-velocity dispersion reshapes the initial stretched pulse to a near-Fourier-transform-limited rectangular waveform.
