Paper Abstract

The compression and reshaping of optical pulses is a key issue for many of the applications in which ultrashort optical pulses are present since dispersion, nonlinearity and losses degrade their quality. We present a novel numerical procedure for designing pulse compressors based on Nonlinear Optical Loop Mirrors (NOLM). To exemplify the performance of the model, we apply this tool to the design of a NOLM intended to compress and reshape low energy pulses obtained by means of diode laser pulsed sources. This way, the quality of the pulses generated with this techniques can be improved.
