Agrawal Institute of Optics University of Rochester Rochester, NY 14627 c 2007 G. P. Agrawal 2/100 JJ II J I Back Close Outline Historical Introduction Self-Phase Modulation and its Applications Modulation Instability and Optical Solitons Optical Switching using Fiber Interferometers Cross-Phase Modulation and its Applications Impact on Optical Communication Systems Concluding Remarks 3/100 JJ II J I Back Close Historical Introduction Celebrating 40th anniversary of Self-Phase Modulation (SPM): F. Demartini et al., Phys. Rev. 164 , 312 (1967); F. Shimizu, PRL 19 , 1097 (1967). Pulse compression though SPM was suggested by 1969: R. A. Fisher and P. L.

Tappert, APL 23 , 142 (1973); Mollenauer, Stolen, and Gordon, PRL 45 , 1095 (1980). 4/100 JJ II J I Back Close Self-Phase Modulation Refractive index depends on optical intensity as (Kerr effect) n ( , I ) = n ( )+ n 2 I ( t ) . Intensity dependence leads to nonlinear phase shift NL ( t ) = ( 2 / ) n 2 I ( t ) L . An optical field modifies its own phase (SPM). Phase shift varies with time for pulses. Each optical pulse becomes chirped. As a pulse propagates along the fiber, its spectrum changes because of SPM. 5/100 JJ II J I Back Close Nonlinear Phase Shift Pulse propagation governed by Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation i A z- 2 2 2 A t 2 + | A | 2 A = . Dispersive effects within the fiber included through 2 . Nonlinear effects included through = 2 n 2 / ( A eff ) . If we ignore dispersive effects, solution can be written as A ( L , t ) = A ( , t ) exp ( i NL ) , where NL ( t ) = L | A ( , t ) | 2 . Nonlinear phase shift depends on input pulse shape. Maximum Phase shift: max = P L = L / L NL .
