Abstract

A new class of linearly chirped fiber Bragg gratings, suitable for all-fiber optical multiplication and reshaping of picosecond pulse trains, is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Repetition-rate multiplication, based on the temporal Talbot effect, is achieved by accurate control of the grating chirp, and a suitable design of the index-modulation depth profile allows for simultaneous square-pulse shaping. A 50-ps squarelike optical pulse train at 10-GHz repetition rate is obtained, starting from a 2.5-GHz Gaussian pulse train emitted by a mode-locked Er-Yb laser.
