Generation of 20-GHz picosecond pulse trains in the normal and anomalous dispersion regimes of optical fibers

In this paper, we numerically and experimentally study two methods to generate 20GHz pulse trains at 1550 nm from a dual-frequency beat-signal. The first method is based on the multiple four-wave mixing temporal compression occuring in the anomalous dispersion regime of a standard optical fiber (SMF). In the second original method, the initial sinusoidal… CONTINUE READING
