Abstract

The results of pulse compression using degenerate cross-phase modulation with and without degenerate four-wave mixing are compared. We show that the weak pulse can be amplified by the strong pump pulses through degenerate four-wave mixing, which improves the compression effect with the use of group-velocity dispersion.
