Paper Abstract

The relative intensity noise (RIN) of hybrid soliton pulse source (HSPS) utilizing different fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) are described. The HSPS is modeled by a time-domain solution of the coupled-mode equations including spontaneous emission noise, and RIN is calculated using numerical solutions of these equations. RIN reduction up to 4 dB has been demonstrated for the mode-locked HSPS using a suitable window function such as Gaussian apodized and introducing appropriate linear chirp value into gratings.
