Paper Abstract

Compression of chirped free femtosecond pulses in hollow core photonic bandgap fibers is investigated numerically. The results show that intrapulse stimulated Raman scattering can improve the quality of the compressed pulse. Positive third-order dispersion is the main limitation on the compression of the femtosecond pulse. However, the combined effect of the intrapulse stimulated Raman scattering and the negative third-order dispersion can form still shorter pulses than is possible with intrapulse stimulated Raman scattering alone. We also investigate the influence of width and peak power of input pulse on pulse compression.
