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.
In this paper we compare the terahertz absorption coefficients and refractive indices for bulk glasses (F2 and Bismuth) and a polymer (PMMA) and investigate the suitability of these materials for terahertz waveguides.
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)
In this paper we will present predictions for loss mechanisms caused by material, waveguide, surface roughness and bends in microwires and estimate their affect on the total loss in the terahertz regime.
