Abstract

The effect of stimulated Raman scattering on pulse-compression characteristics has been studied experimentally and theoretically. When an optical pulse is compressed by an optical fiber and a grating pair, the generation of stimulated Raman scattering becomes important. When stimulated Raman scattering occurs, the compressed pulse width changes asymmetrically with respect to the magnitude of the anomalous dispersion created by the grating pair. The compressed pulse has much residual energy in its wings, and it does not have a smooth envelope for large anomalous dispersion.
