Abstract

We propose and numerically demonstrate a simple method to generate a high-repetition-rate ultrashort pulse train. We show that the nonlinear propagation of a prechirped dual-frequency signal through a fiber with exponentially decreasing dispersion will give rise to a train of noninteracting solitons at a high repetition rate.
