Paper Abstract

Nonlinear propagation effects in birefringent optical fibers are investigated and their implications for generating ultrashort light pulses in the IR are discussed. Stable compression of intense Nd:YAG laser pulses is obtained due to combined action of self-phase modulation, stimulated Raman scattering, and group-velocity dispersion. First operation of a fiber-grating Raman laser with subpicosecond output is demonstrated in the regime of positive group-velocity dispersion.
