Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel optical pulse compression technique based on high-doped erbium fiber amplifier and standard single-mode fiber(SMF) is proposed. We used this amplifier with the erbium ion concentration of 6300 ppm to amplify hyperbolic secant pulse from a regeneratively mode-locked fiber laser. The central wavelength, pulsewidth and peak power of this pulse are 1550nm,12.5ps and 3mW, respectively. Then the amplified pulse with peak power level corresponding to a higher-order soliton is compressed when it propagates through a 3-km-long single-mode fiber. The compressed pulses under different pump powers and fiber length are studied.The results show that the method can not only get a narrower pulse, but also can solve the difficulty that pulses at low peak power cannot be compressed directly in the fiber. Meanwhile this compression technique is easy to achieve.
