Observation of optical nonlinearities in an all-solid transverse Anderson localizing optical fiber.
An all-solid transverse Anderson localizing optical fiber (TALOF) was fabricated using a novel combination of the stack-and-draw and molten core methods, and nonlinear four-wave mixing is reported for the first time in a TALOF. Expand
Fabrication and characterization of disordered polymer optical fibers for transverse Anderson localization of light.
The disordered optical fiber presented in this work is the first device-level implementation of 2D Anderson localization, and can potentially be used for image transport and short-haul optical communication systems. Expand
Transverse Anderson localization in a disordered glass optical fiber
We report the first observation of transverse Anderson localization in a glass optical fiber. The strong localization happens near the outer boundary of the fiber and no trace of localization isExpand
Random lasing in an Anderson localizing optical fiber
A directional random laser mediated by transverse Anderson localization in a disordered glass optical fiber is reported, showing that if a localized input pump is scanned across the disordered fiber input facet, the output laser signal follows the transverse position of the pump. Expand
Insights and Aspects to the Modeling of the Molten Core Method for Optical Fiber Fabrication
To better understand the underlying mechanisms, a silica-cladding, YAG-derived yttrium aluminosilicate glass optical fiber was fabricated and its properties were monitored as a function of draw time/length and it was found that diffusion-controlled dissolution of silica into the molten core agreed well with the observations.

Detailed investigation of the impact of the fiber design parameters on the transverse Anderson localization of light in disordered optical fibers.
The impact of the design parameters of the disordered fiber on the beam radius of the propagating transverse localized beam is explored and it is shown that the optimum value of the fill-fraction of the disorder is 50% and a lower value results in a larger beam radius. Expand
All-fiber high repetition rate microfluidic dye laser
Optofluidic dye lasers may play a significant role in future laser applications in numerous areas, combining wavelength flexibility with integration and ease of operation. Nevertheless, no all-fiberExpand
Image transport through silica-air random core optical fiber
Optical image transport through low-loss silica-air based disordered fiber is reported for the first time. Transverse Anderson localization is confirmed by propagating a 976nm laser beam through aExpand
Multiple-beam propagation in an Anderson localized optical fiber.
The extent of the drift of localized beams induced by macro-bending is investigated and it is shown that it is possible to design Anderson localized optical fibers that can be used for practical beam-multiplexing applications. Expand
Localization of light in a disordered medium
Among the unusual transport properties predicted for disordered materials is the Anderson localization phenomenon. This is a disorder-induced phase transition in the electron-transport behaviour fromExpand
