16 shows transmitted pulse shapes when 100-ps pulses were propagated through this grating. The peak intensity of the input Gaussian pulse is 25 GW/cm2 . Its central frequency is tuned close to but outside the stop band such that the grating provides anomalous GVD (upper branch of the dispersion curve). At lower power levels, pulse is compressed because of the combination of GVD and SPM that leads to soliton-effect compression (discussed in Chapter 6). At the 25 GW/cm2 power level, the transmitted pulse exhibits a multipeak structure that can be interpreted as a pulse train generated through modulation instability.
