Tiivistelmä

The propagation of N-soliton pulses in an optical fibre with slowly decreasing, shifted anomalous dispersion has been studied experimentally and theoretically. Using a generalised nonlinear Schrodinger equation, we have constructed an adequate numerical model for light propagation in such fibre. Using numerical simulation, we have shown that the use of dispersion-decreasing fibres ensures higher average dispersive radiation intensity and better uniformity of the supercontinuum spectrum. A reduction in the third-order dispersion of such fibres enables supercontinuum generation with a bandwidth exceeding that in homogeneous fibres by several hundred nanometres even in the case of a medium-power subpicosecond source.
