Author(s): Hongwei Chen; Xingyao Gu; Minghua Chen; Shizhong Xie

Paper Abstract

A simple method for phase stabilization of ultrashort optical pulse train is presented. By using cross-polarization effect in high nonlinear photonic crystal fiber, optical pulses from a mode-locked fiber laser are wavelength converted with stable phase character. A differential phase shift keying modulation system is successfully built to test the performance of this method.
