We attain highly efficient, low-pedestal Gaussian pulse compression using comb-like profiled fiber (CPF) characterized by normal-dispersion-HNLF. In experiment, input pulse having 2.6ps-FWHM is successfully compressed to 0.39ps-FWHM Gaussian pulse with peak-to-pedestal-ratio of 19.3dB by 3-step-CPF.
