Abstract

Pulses from a wavelength-tunable, mode-locked laser diode were measured after 21 km of single-mode fiber propagation by optical sampling with another mode-locked laser diode; a resolution of 0.1 psec/(nm km) is achieved in this chromatic dispersion measurement. In another related experiment, 78-psec-duration pulses from an ordinary, multilongitudinal-mode laser diode are clearly displayed by optical sampling after 36 km of fiber propagation. System bandwidth increases to approximately 500 GHz km as the laser-diode wavelength is temperature tuned through the zero-dispersion region.
