Abstract
A new type of optical pulse shaper for arbitrary waveform generation is demonstrated, based on fiber Bragg grating and micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) technologies. This is an on-chip device which is compact, robust, monolithic, and programmable and can be used for a variety of applications such as higher order dispersion compensation in fiber communication links and high-energy pulse amplification.
