Hollow-core photonic crystal fibre (HC-PCF) is unique host for gas-based nonlinear optical experiments. This is because it offers low-loss single-mode guidance in a micron-sized hollow core along with pressure-tunable dispersion and nonlinearity. In previous work, noble gases have been used as Raman-free nonlinear media, permitting efficient soliton-based pulse compression where the interplay between Kerr nonlinearity and anomalous dispersion results in dramatic self-compression of an...[Show more]
