Abstract

Self-similar propagation of linearly chirped hyperbolic-secant pulses in a comblike decreasing-dispersion fiber amplifier has been observed experimentally for the first time to our knowledge. The scheme takes advantage of an exact solution of the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation with distributed coefficients.
