Modulational instability in dispersion-kicked optical fibers

We study, both theoretically and experimentally, modulational instability in optical fibers that have a longitudinal evolution of their dispersion in the form of a Dirac delta comb. By means of

Tunable modulational instability sidebands via parametric resonance in periodically tapered optical fibers.

The wide tunability of the resonant peaks by variations of the tapering period and depth will allow to implement sources of correlated photon pairs which are far-detuned from the input pump wavelength, with important applications in quantum optics.

Pulse confinement in optical fibers with random dispersion

The pinning method can be used to both manufacture better fibers and upgrade existing fiber links and provide probability distributions of pulse parameters that are numerically indistinguishable from the statistically steady case.

Observation of modulational instability in optical fibers.

We report the first observation of the modulational instability of light waves in dielectric material using a neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet laser operated at 1.319 \ensuremath{\mu}m and

Vector modulational instability induced by parametric resonance in periodically tapered highly birefringent optical fibers

We study the modulational instability induced by periodic variations of group-velocity dispersion and nonlinear coefficients in a highly birefringent fiber. We observe, for each resonance order, the

Modulation instability in dispersion oscillating fibers

In this review we present recent theoretical and experimental progress on modulation instability and parametric amplification processes in dispersion oscillating fibers. These optical fibers are

Suppression and splitting of modulational instability sidebands in periodically tapered optical fibers because of fourth-order dispersion.

Modulational instability induced by periodic variations of group-velocity dispersion in the proximity of the zero dispersion point confirms the dramatic effect of periodic tapering in the control and shaping of MI sidebands in optical fibers.

Modulational instability (MI) of electromagnetic waves in a birefringent fiber with a periodic dispersion (two-step dispersion management scheme) is investigated. The properties of new sidebands are

Modulational instability in dispersion oscillating fiber ring cavities.

We show that the use of a dispersion oscillating fiber in passive cavities significantly extends the modulational instability to novel high-frequency bands, which also destabilizes the branches of
