Dispersion management in highly nonlinear, carbon disulfide filled holey fibers

Dispersion management in highly nonlinear, carbon disulfide filled holey fibers
Dispersion management in highly nonlinear, carbon disulfide filled holey fibers
We study various fiber designs which incorporate a highly nonlinear liquid, carbon disulfide, with the aim of designing a structure with the highest possible nonlinearity and at the same time a low and flattened dispersion at telecom wavelengths, as required for many all-optical processing devices. We observe that soft glass-based fibers cannot fully exploit the high nonlinearity of carbon disulfide, whereas a silica microstructured fiber with a selectively filled core allows excellent dispersion control and a nonlinear coefficient in excess of 6500 W-1.km-1 at telecoms wavelengths.

Abstract

We study various fiber designs which incorporate a highly nonlinear liquid, carbon disulfide, with the aim of designing a structure with the highest possible nonlinearity and at the same time a low and flattened dispersion at telecom wavelengths, as required for many all-optical processing devices. We observe that soft glass-based fibers cannot fully exploit the high nonlinearity of carbon disulfide, whereas a silica microstructured fiber with a selectively filled core allows excellent dispersion control and a nonlinear coefficient in excess of 6500 W-1.km-1 at telecoms wavelengths.
