Pulse shaping, compression, and pedestal suppression employing a nonlinear-optical loop mirror

Abstract

We study the shaping of picosecond-duration optical pulses by the intensity-dependent transmission characteristics of a fiber loop mirror in the normally dispersive region. Experimental results for sech2 intensity input profiles are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions. In addition, input pulses with substantial background radiation emerge both compressed and pedestal free.
