Abstract
A route of delivering ultra-short laser pulses through a polarization-maintaining single-mode fiber has been investigated experimentally. The group velocity dispersion was well compensated, and the self-phase modulation was depressed in fiber. Finally, a 40-fs laser pulse with the energy of 70 pJ was obtained at the output of the transmitted fiber with the length up to 4 m in our fiber-delivery system. The route exhibits distinguishing features of compactness and flexibility, and this 40-fs laser pulse can be used not only to generate broadband terahertz (THz) radiation but also to detect broadband THz radiation, which is much better than the 150-fs laser pulse used previously.
