We review the properties of conventional and emerging nonlinear fibers. More specifically, we describe advances in soft glass microstructured fibers, including fabrication, the demonstration of extreme nonlinearity and a generalisation of the underpinning nonlinear theory.
The properties of phase-sensitive amplification (PSA) in highly nonlinear fibers are studied. We present a soft glass fiber designed for high nonlinearity and broadband, low dispersion and simulate its performance as a PSA device for ultrafast bitrate signals at 640 Gb/s. The effect of the fiber design parameters on its PSA performance have been studied and(More)
