Performance of different normal dispersion fibers to generate triangular optical pulses

Performance of different normal dispersion fibers to generate triangular optical pulses To identify the best possible normally dispersive optical fibers (NDF) in view of efficient triangular pulse (TP) generation, the optimization of several passive NDFs are reported in this work. The study shows that TPs, which sustain over a reasonably good fiber length, can be generated at shorter length when higher values of dispersion and nonlinearity are considered. A suitable NDF with high value of dispersion and nonlinearity is chosen and renamed as normally dispersive highly nonlinear fiber (ND-HNLF). The fiber parameters and pulse conditions are optimized here in such a way that the pulse maintains its triangular shape throughout a longer length in transient state. A detail analysis is performed on generation and stability of triangular pulses through the ND-HNLFs in absence and in presence of gain. When compared, the ND-HNLF with gain is found to be preferable due to their lower input power requirement and lesser broadening of the output triangular pulses whereas passive ND-HNLF performs better in terms of formation of TPs at shorter length and sustainability of those pulses over moderately larger fiber length. It is also shown that the suggested fibers, competent enough to generate stable TPs can be potentially applied in the area of optical signal doubling and a new fiber based approach is mentioned as well for saw-tooth pulse formation.
