Abstract

We have proposed and experimentally demonstrated an ultrafast optical pulse repetition rate multiplication technique from a relatively slow optical pulse source at 1550nm based on reconfigurable time domain spectral amplitude/phase filtering operation. In the proposed technique, a pair of dispersive fibers and a high speed electro-optical modulator driven by a 40GHz pulse pattern generator that can be rapidly programmed are used to control the repetition rate. In the experiment, repetition rate multiplication from 10GHz to a high speed repetition rate of 20GHz and 40GHz has been successfully achieved by the proposed time domain spectral amplitude/phase filtering.
