Limits to compression with cascaded quadratic soliton compressors

Bache, M.; Bang, Ole; Moses, J; Wise, F W; Krolikowski, Wieslaw


We study cascaded quadratic soliton compressors and address the physical mechanisms that limit the compression. A nonlocal model is derived, and the nonlocal response is shown to have an additional oscillatory component in the nonstationary regime when the group-velocity mismatch (GVM) is strong. This inhibits efficient compression. Raman-like perturbations from the cascaded nonlinearity, competing cubic nonlinearities, higher-order dispersion, and soliton energy may also limit...[Show more]
