Abstract

A train of nearly transform-limited pulses are generated from a 1.55-μm distributed-feedback laser diode by using gain switching in a novel technique, which is a combination of a spectral window and temporal compression. By amplifying these pulses with erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, we demonstrate soliton transmission in a conventional single-mode fiber.
