Abstract

We investigate theoretically the conditions under which optical phase conjugation via difference-frequency generation compensates for the effects of dispersion and self-phase modulation in the propagation of ultrashort pulses through fibers. We find that it is desirable to operate in the regime of large fiber dispersion and that nearly perfect pulse reconstruction can occur even with appreciable depletion of the pump wave in the nonlinear crystal.
