Abstract

We describe a novel method for subpicosecond pulse shaping based on longitudinal spectral decomposition in dispersive media. The entire system is created with standard telecommunications equipment allowing for integration with optical communication networks. The technique has the potential for time–bandwidth products 10 4 due to exclusive reliance on time-domain processing. We introduce the principle of operation and subsequently support it with results from our experimental system. Both theory and experiments suggest third-order dispersion as the principle limitation to realizing a large number of resolvable spots. Chirped fiber Bragg gratings offer a route to increase the time–bandwidth product for high-speed signal processing applications.
