Abstract

A method to generate time- and wavelength-interleaved optical pulse trains based on dispersion spreading and sectional compression is proposed and demonstrated. A 4×2GHz time- and wavelength-interleaved pulse train is generated from an input 2 GHz mode-locked pulse train. The advantages of the proposed scheme are its simplicity and robustness, since no microwave component or multiwavelength laser source is required. In addition, we demonstrate supercontinuum generation of an ultraflat 18 nm bandwidth spectrum with less than 0.5 dB fluctuation over the 3.2 nm central bandwidth.
