Description/Abstract

We numerically investigate ultra-short pulse propagation in multimode optical fibers with launch peak powers approaching the critical power for self-focusing using a generalized multimode nonlinear Schrödinger equation approach. Nonlinear spatial and temporal effects combined with fiber dispersion govern pulse compression in space and time which can result in damage inducing intensity levels. Here we identify pulse parameters for which damage is avoided and high-power delivery through optical fiber is possible near the fiber zero-dispersion wavelength
