Abstract

An optical-fibre based pulse compressor for gain-switched DFB laser pulses has been optimised using a systematic procedure based on the initial complete characterisation of the laser pulses, followed by numerical simulations of the pulse propagation in different types of fibre to determine the required lengths for optimum compression. Using both linear and nonlinear compression techniques, an optimum compression factor of 12 is achieved.
