Experimental demonstration of 100 GHz dark soliton generation and propagation using a +GVD dispersion decreasing fiber

D.J.Richardson, R.P.Chamberlin, L.Dong and D.N.Payne


The authors report the first experimental demonstration of high-frequency dark soliton generation through nonlinear conversion of a high-intensity beat signal in a +GVD dispersion decreasing fibre. High quality, 1.6ps dark soliton generation at 100GHz is obtained. The quality or the pulses and the stability of the trains are demonstrated by propagation through a 2.2km span of -GVD dispersion shifted fibre (~ two soliton periods).
