Spectral Shaping of Ultrashort Pulses and its Application to Pulse Compression and Dark Optical Solitons

Linear filtering is a widely applicable technique for manipulating spectral and temporal profiles of signals in any linear system. Powerful techniques for linear filtering of picosecond and femtosecond optical pulses have recently been developed; and as a result, synthesis of arbitrarily shaped ultrashort pulses has been achieved [1-5]. In this paper we describe two applications of ultrafast pulse shaping to nonlinear guided wave optics: (a) experimental demonstration of fundamental dark soliton propagation in optical fibers [6], and (b) extreme stabilization of optical pulse compression by stimulated Raman scattering [7, 8].
