A method is described for compressing optical pulses at any wavelength in an optical fiber. It uses the negative dispersion property of permanent phase gratings created within the fiber. No external grating pair is required.

    In view of the fact that the bandwidth required in optical fiber communication systems will exceed 100 Gb s-1, ultrafast optical switching and modulation devices with high efficiency must be developed. Given that intersubband transitions (ISBT) in quantum wells (QWs) are one of the important...

    The hyperbolic frequency-modulated (HFM) waveform has an inherent Doppler-invariant property. It is more conducive than the conventional linear frequency-modulated (LFM) waveform to high speed moving target imaging. In order to apply the HFM waveform to existing inverse synthetic aperture radar...
