Abstract

Pulse-train multiplication based on the temporal Talbot effect in a linearly chirped fiber Bragg grating has been experimentally demonstrated. A 40-GHz repetition-rate, nearly transform-limited 10-ps duration optical pulse train at 1.533 μm has been obtained from a 2.5-GHz mode-locked Er– Yb:glass laser by use of a 100-cm-long linearly chirped apodized fiber grating.

  12. We note that the positive time delay in the autocorrelation is slightly larger than the negative one, which results in the appearance of one additional pulse on the positive side. The leading and trailing edges of the pulses at the two extremes of the autocorrelation trace are hacked owing to the finite extension of rotating mirrors.
