Abstract

Wavelength-tunable multicolor optical pulse generation based on the self-frequency shift of a Raman soliton was demonstrated. An ellipse polarized pump source, a highly birefringent (HB) optical fiber, and a highly nonlinear dispersion-shifted fiber were used to generate Raman soliton pulses. The wavelength was tuned by controlling the polarization of the pump source. Raman soliton pulses with six different colors and low wavelength crosstalk under 20 dB have been successfully generated.
