Abstract

It is shown that the fiber and grating-pair pulse-compression technique is limited by higher-order terms in the response of the grating-pair compressor and that these terms also limit the usefulness of the compressor for canceling the effects of group-velocity dispersion on the propagation of ultrashort optical pulses. Numerical evaluations of these limits are in good agreement with the minimum experimentally observed compressed pulse width of 8 fsec. Approaches for achieving shorter pulses are discussed.
