We built a pulse compressor using a comb-like dispersion-profiled fiber (CDPF). The CDPF consists of 12-segment fibers with the dispersion alternatively high and low. Using this compressor and a 17 dBm Erbium-doped fiber amplifier, the 10 GHz, 12 ps pulses generated from an actively mode-locked Er3+ doped fiber ring laser was compressed to ∼2ps without pedestal. We also show that compared with the high order soliton pulse compressor, the power efficiency can be doubled in supercontinuum generation by using the pump pulses compressed by this CDPF compressor.
