Reducing pulse distortion in fast-light pulse propagation through an erbium-doped fiber amplifier.

Abstract

When a pulse superposed on a cw background propagates through an erbium-doped fiber amplifier with a negative group velocity, either pulse broadening or pulse compression can be observed. These effects can be explained in terms of two competing mechanisms: gain recovery and pulse spectrum broadening. The distortion of the pulse shape caused by these effects… (More)
