Spectral interference measurement of nonlinear pulse propagation dynamics in optical fibers

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Ultrafast pulse shaping and ultrafast pulse spectral phase-retrieval techniques are used in the spectral interference measurement of nonlinear pulse propagation dynamics in dispersion-shifted optical fiber. Nonlinear responses in both amplitude profile and phase profile of the pulses at zero-dispersion wavelength as well as at nonzero-dispersion wavelength are directly measured. A numerical simulation that uses a third-oder-dispersion-included nonlinear Schrödinger equation gives excellent agreement with the experimental data. © 2000 Optical Society of America.
