Abstract

Based on the nonlinearity of the nonlinear optical coupler (NOC) and the amplifying capacity of the backward Raman fiber amplifier (PBRFA), two new optical systems to compress the optical pulse (Optical Pulse Self-Compressor: OPSC) are proposed. Using the expressions describing relationship between input and output intensities from ports of the NOC and the derived expression describing the amplification of the PBRFA, the compressing process of the optical pulse propagating through the OPSC is simulated. The results show that the peak of the optical pulse will be enhanced and the duration of the optical pulse will be reduced significantly. Consequently, the shape of input pulse is completely compressed with the certain efficiency. It means the optical pulse is self-compressed without the external pump pulse by proposing the OPSC.
