A new scheme for undistorted ideal pulse transmission is proposed that uses optical Fourier transformation (OFT) and transform-limited (TL) pulses. The technique focuses on the unchanged spectrum of the Fourier TL pulse after transmission, and at the output we convert the unchanged spectrum to the time domain using OFT. The transformed waveform in the time domain has no distortion. To show the effectiveness of this technique, we undertook a third-order dispersion elimination experiment. The results agree well with the theory.
