Mid-IR soliton compression in silicon optical fibers and fiber tapers

Peacock, Anna C. (2012) Mid-IR soliton compression in silicon optical fibers and fiber tapers Optics Letters, 37, (5), pp. 818-820. (doi:10.1364/OL.37.000818).

Record type: Article


Numerical simulations are used to investigate soliton compression in silicon core optical fibers at 2.3 µm in the mid-infrared waveguide regime. Compression in both standard silicon fibers and fiber tapers is compared to establish the relative compression ratios for a range of input pulse conditions. The results show that tapered fibers can be used to obtain higher levels of compression for moderate soliton orders and thus lower input powers.
