Dispersion controlled highly nonlinear fibers for all optical processing at telecoms wavelengths

Dispersion controlled highly nonlinear fibers for all optical processing at telecoms wavelengths
Dispersion controlled highly nonlinear fibers for all optical processing at telecoms wavelengths

The optical properties of the fabricated fibers are assessed both experimentally and through accurate numerical simulations.

Abstract

We review our recent progress in the development of lead silicate glass fibers with high nonlinearity and tailored near-zero dispersion at telecommunication wavelengths, encompassing holey, all-solid microstructured and W-type fiber designs. The fabrication techniques and relative merits of each fiber design are described in detail. The optical properties of the fabricated fibers are assessed both experimentally and through accurate numerical simulations. The significant potential of lead silicate highly nonlinear fibers for all-optical signal processing at telecommunication wavelengths is shown via a number of key experimental demonstrators.
