Abstract: We propose and numerically study a simple scheme to obtain large pulse-width reduction of optical pulses generated by semiconductor lasers. The scheme consists of modulating two single-mode semiconductor lasers coupled through a normal dispersion fiber. The optimal pulse compression is obtained for a particular range of phase delay between the two modulated electrical injection currents. In addition, the optical pulses so obtained have a larger output power and are very close to transform-limited as required for soliton communication systems.
