31) contains no information about the pulse phase or coherence. This point is discussed in detail in Chapter 9. Gaussian Pulses Having introduced essential pulse characteristics, it seems convenient to discuss an example to which we can refer to in later chapters. We choose a Gaussian pulse with linear chirp. This choice is one of analytical convenience: the Gaussian shape is not the most commonly encountered temporal shape. 33) with the pulse duration τp = √ 2 ln 2 τG . 33) the chirp parameter a is positive for a downchirp (dϕ/dt = −2at/τG2 ).

Eq. 123). If a and k have equal sign y2 (z) decreases until it becomes zero after a propagation distance zc = 2 a τG0 . 131) and the time-dependent phase according to Eq. 124) vanishes. From here on the propagation behavior is that of an unchirped input pulse of duration τGmin , that is, the pulse broadens and develops a time-dependent phase. The larger the input chirp (|a|), the shorter the minimum pulse duration that can be obtained [see Eq. 131)]. The underlying reason is that the excess bandwidth of a chirped pulse is converted into a narrowing of the envelope by chirp compensation, until the Fourier limit is reached.

Pulse Propagation 29 One might wonder if the discontinuity in index created by a short and intense pulse should not lead to a reflection for a portion of the pulse. This is an important question regarding the validity of the first-order approximation to Maxwell’s propagation equations. If, at t = 0, a short wave packet is launched in the +z direction in a homogeneous medium, is it legitimate to assume that there will be no pulse generated in the opposite direction? ” This property extends even to the nonlinear polarization created by the interaction of the light with a two-level system.
