ABSTRACT
The temporal Talbot effect and soliton propagation in an optical fiber were exploited to yield a series of pulse train sources with tunable repetition rate simply through variation of the pulse train power in sections of the fiber. In a dual-repetition-rate configuration, 10 and 20 GHz or 10 and 30 GHz repetition rates could be achieved depending on the fiber length used, with pulse durations lower than 21 ps. In a triple-repetition-rate configuration, 10, 20, and 30 GHz repetition rates were obtained, with pulse durations lower than 15 ps. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
