Ultrafast pulse compression by two-photon gain in a semiconductor waveguide

Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally compression of femtosecond-scale pulses by two-photon gain in an electrically-driven AlGaAs waveguide. Dynamic control of pulse width from 240 to 140 fs is achieved by varying the current injection levels.
