Effects of pulse self-focusing on supercontinuum generation in multimode optical fibers

Effects of pulse self-focusing on supercontinuum generation in multimode optical fibers
We investigate the nonlinear propagation of ultra-short pulses in multimode optical fibers. At high peak powers, close to the critical power for self-focusing in bulk materials, a four-wave mixing process is observed which transfers power from the fundamental fiber mode to higher-order modes and leads to transverse spatial pulse compression. The interplay of this spatial effect with the temporal dynamics responsible for supercontinuum generation is discussed.

Abstract

We investigate the nonlinear propagation of ultra-short pulses in multimode optical fibers. At high peak powers, close to the critical power for self-focusing in bulk materials, a four-wave mixing process is observed which transfers power from the fundamental fiber mode to higher-order modes and leads to transverse spatial pulse compression. The interplay of this spatial effect with the temporal dynamics responsible for supercontinuum generation is discussed.
