An efficient wavelength converter exploiting a grating based saw-tooth pulse shaper

Parmigiani, F., Ibsen, M., Ng, T.T., Provost, L., Petropoulos, P. and Richardson, D.J. (2008) An efficient wavelength converter exploiting a grating based saw-tooth pulse shaper IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 20, (17), pp. 1461-1463. (doi:10.1109/LPT.2008.927887).

Record type: Article


We experimentally demonstrate the generation of picosecond triangular optical pulses using a superstructured fiber Bragg grating and show experimentally that use of this pulse shape can provide a three-fold improvement in conversion efficiency relative to the use of Gaussian pulses with similar pulse widths when used in a wavelength conversion scheme based on self-phase-modulation and subsequent offset filtering.
