Abstract

A completely fiber-integrated, wavelength-tunable subpicosecond pulse source is demonstrated using the soliton self-frequency shift in highly nonlinear dispersion-shifted fiber from a 1.56µm 10-GHz 400-fs signal. Solitons as short as 100 fs are obtained at tunable wavelengths as high as 1.72 µm. Raman gain from an external pump is used to extend the soliton self-frequency shift to longer wavelengths.
