Carefully dispersion- and nonlinearity-managed cascades of gas-filled hollow-core fibers enable, as our theoretical analysis shows, efficient pulse compression with ultrahigh compression ratios. With dispersion and nonlinearity of individual fibers in such cascades optimized toward distinctly different goal functions, millijoule picosecond laser pulses can be compressed to sub-100-GW subcycle field waveforms.
