Abstract

The cubic term of a response function of a grating pair can be changed by varying the angle of incidence to the gratings, while the quadratic term is controlled by varying the distance between the gratings. With this cubic term, the self-steepening (optical shock) and third order dispersion in single-mode fibers, which produce a nonlinearly chirped pulse, can be successfully compensated for optical pulse compression.
