Abstract
Experimental demonstration of optical pulse slicing and pulse shaping by pumping a large core, liquid-filled waveguide with picosecond radiation are reported. Steepening of the optical pulses to the extend that the peak of an input pulse catches up and overpasses the rising edge is observed, which results in the pulse shape with a 'negative-like' rising edge. Significant pulsewidth reduction by over 20 fold is obtained. Based on the experimental results, a new mechanism of self trapping of picosecond radiation in a waveguide structure is proposed, which is shown to agree well with our experimental results.
