Abstract

We report compression of low-power femtosecond pulses at 1.06 μ m in a dispersion-decreasing holey fiber. Near-adiabatic compression of 130 fs pulses down to 60 fs has been observed. Measured spectra and pulse shapes agree well with numerical simulations. Compression factors of ten are possible in optimized fibers.
