Paper Abstract

We demonstrate both experimentally and theoretically that efficient frequency down-shifting of an optical soliton pulse can be realized in a dispersion decreasing fiber. This effect relies on the Raman self-frequency shifting that can occur with high efficiency due to the adiabatic compression of the pulse and therefore reaching higher intensities in a fiber with monotonically decreasing anomalous dispersion. A smooth frequency shifting of 90 fs soliton pulses in the 1.55-1.8 &mgr;m range is demonstrated.
