Paper Abstract

Widely wavelength tunable soliton self-frequency shift (SSFS) from 1.58 μm to 2.07 μm was experimentally demonstrated in a highly nonlinear fiber pumped with a mode-locked sub-100 fs Er-doped fiber laser. The maximum output spectrum (full width at half maximum, FWHM) around 2 μm is 143 nm. Although the pulse width of SSFS was measured to be a few picoseconds, the large FWHM bandwidth of SSFS spectrum shows that soliton with sub-50 fs could be achieved if the giant chirped pulse is efficiently re-compressed to be transforms limited. Dispersive wave with a minimum pulse width of 50 fs was also observed.
