Abstract

We report that stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in a dispersion-decreasing fiber (DDF) is particularly disadvantageous with ultrahigh-speed femtosecond soliton compression that exceeds 40 GHz. It is important to note that the increase in the longitudinal mode power of a soliton is proportional to the square of the repetition rate. The SBS threshold is determined by the dispersion-decreasing rate of the DDF, rather than its fiber loss. We suppressed the SBS by applying 30-MHz frequency modulation to a mode-locked fiber laser and successfully obtained a stable 40-GHz, 100-fs pulse train.
