Abstract

We demonstrate the use of superimposed fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) operating in reflection as amplitude and phase filtering stages for multiplying the repetition rate of a given optical pulse sequence. In particular, we use a 1-cm-long structure of two superimposed linearly chirped FBGs to generate a continuous optical pulse train with a repetition rate of 100 GHz (duty cycle /spl ap/50%) at a wavelength of 1.55 μm from a 10-GHz mode-locked fiber laser.
