Parabolic pulse evolution in normally dispersive fiber amplifiers preceding the similariton formation regime

Parabolic pulse evolution in normally dispersive fiber amplifiers preceding the similariton formation regime
We show analytically and numerically that parabolic pulses and similaritons are not always synonyms and that a self-phase modulation amplification regime can precede the self-similar evolution. The properties of the recompressed pulses after SPM amplification are investigated. We also demonstrate that negatively chirped parabolic pulses can exhibit a spectral recompression during amplification leading to high-power chirpfree parabolic pulses at the amplifier output.

Abstract

We show analytically and numerically that parabolic pulses and similaritons are not always synonyms and that a self-phase modulation amplification regime can precede the self-similar evolution. The properties of the recompressed pulses after SPM amplification are investigated. We also demonstrate that negatively chirped parabolic pulses can exhibit a spectral recompression during amplification leading to high-power chirpfree parabolic pulses at the amplifier output.
