Abstract: We consider the non-adiabatic pulse compression of cascaded soliton propagating in three consecutive optical fiber segments, each of which has a convex dispersion profile with two zero-dispersion wavelengths. The convex dispersion profile provides an accurate description of the chromatic dispersion over the whole frequency range, thus allowing for a comprehensive theoretical treatment of the cascaded third order soliton compression when ultrashort pulses (<1 ps) are considered. Typical dispersion-flattened and decreasing fiber (DFDF) has a convex curvature in its dispersion profile which varies along length of fiber. Compared to DFDF, the cascading of fiber segments with convex dispersion that stays constant along the fiber length greatly reduces the manufacture difficulties and provides a much simpler engineering design in practice. High-degree pulse compression and high-coherence supercontinuum generation are demonstrated.
