Paper Abstract

We experimentally and numerically demonstrate the possibility of generating parabolic pulses by propagating Gaussian pulses in 1.8 m-long normally dispersive tapered microstructured optical fibre (MOF). The modelling of the MOF and the procedure for the determination of the taper's parameters is presented. The proposed taper is fabricated and experimentally characterised using linear frequency resolved optical gating (l-FROG) technique, to measure the output pulse intensity. Numerical simulations are in a good agreement with the experimental results.
