Parabolic pulse generation in tapered silicon fibers
Numerical simulations are used to investigate parabolic pulse generation in tapered silicon optical fibers. The simulations are based on a realistic silicon fiber taper with micron sized core dimensions, designed to have a decreasing normal dispersion profile, and include the effects of linear and nonlinear absorption. Evolution to the parabolic regime is quantified by a misfit parameter and the optimum values for the input pulse and taper length are established. The results identify a distortion free nonlinear propagation window for the transmission of optical pulses in normal dispersion silicon waveguides.

Abstract

Numerical simulations are used to investigate parabolic pulse generation in tapered silicon optical fibers. The simulations are based on a realistic silicon fiber taper with micron sized core dimensions, designed to have a decreasing normal dispersion profile, and include the effects of linear and nonlinear absorption. Evolution to the parabolic regime is quantified by a misfit parameter and the optimum values for the input pulse and taper length are established. The results identify a distortion free nonlinear propagation window for the transmission of optical pulses in normal dispersion silicon waveguides.
