Description/Abstract

We investigate the adiabatic compression of picosecond and subpicosecond soliton pulses from all-fiber, passively mode-locked, erbium-doped fiber soliton lasers operating at 1550 nm in dispersion-decreasing fibers (DDF's). High-quality soliton compression from 630 down to 115 fs in a 100-m DDF and from 3.5 down to 230 fs in a 1.6-km DDF is obtained. The effects of third-order dispersion and Raman self-scattering on the compression process are observed and discussed.
