The effects of self-phase modulation on a Gaussian incoherent field propagating in a dispersionless nonlinear Kerr medium are calculated without assuming the mean-field-theory approximation. Deviations between the exact and approximate solutions for the correlation time compression ratio as a function of the pulse power and fiber length are computed.
Spectral broadening of a weak 80-microJ picosecond 530-nm laser pulse in a BK-7 glass has been enhanced over the entire spectral band by the presence of an intense millijoule picosecond 1060-nm laser pulse. The spectral distributions of the self-phase modulation and the induced-phase modulation signals are similar. The dominant enhancement mechanism for the… (More)
Infrared supercontinua spanning the range 3-14 microm were observed when an intense pulse generated from a CO(2) laser was passed into GaAs, AgBr, ZnSe, and CdS crystals. These supercontinua have been qualitatively compared with theoretical predictions.
I compute the invariant spatial configurations and their spatial Fourier transforms for a weak probe propagating in a two-dimensional X((3)) medium in the presence of a spatial optical soliton pump. The number of these configurations increases in an enhanced induced-phase-modulation medium.
The simultaneous effects of self-focusing, self-phase modulation, and diffraction on the propagation of an ultrafast pulse in a homogeneous Kerr medium are described. The competing effects of self-focusing and diffraction are shown to modify the shape and magnitude of the pulse amplitude and phase. These modifications are shown to affect the spectral… (More)
We examine the possibility that the first stage in the pulse compression of a weak pulse can be achieved through its induced phase modulation by a strong pump. The compression ratio for the fiber-and-grating compressor for a weak probe in the presence of a pump is computed. Walk-off effects between the probe and the pump are incorporated into the… (More)
