Paper Abstract

Wavelength tunable pulses with ~ 200 fs pulse width were generated by using a two stage pulse compression mechanism of gain-switched DFB laser pulses which were originally ~ 10 ps long. The pulse compression mechanism utilizes fiber nonlinearities and it involves propagation through specific lengths of various types of fiber and a nonlinear loop mirror. Simulation of the entire compression scheme by solving the nonlinear Schrodinger equation shows good agreement with the experiment results.
