Abstract

In this paper, we present a technique for the shaping of short pulses based on the use of superstructured fiber Bragg gratings (SSFBGs), We apply this technique to demonstrate the generation of 20-ps rectangular pulses by phase and amplitude profiling of 2.5-ps soliton pulses. Numerical calculations validate our experimental findings.
