Paper Abstract

The talk reviews essential physical processes, experimental and theoretical results, concepts and trends of light pulse compression based on chirp production and compensation. In particular the pulse propagation in optical fibers is dealt with, where for positive group velocity dispersion the intensity dependent refraction index impose a linear frequency chirp on an optical pulse, which can be subsequently compressed by a dispersive delay line such as a grating pair. In particular the compression of high-energy light pulses is treated. Negative group velocity dispersion leads to soliton propagation phenomena. The influence of stimulated Raman scattering on pulse propagation in optical fibers is considered.
