Abstract

We report for the first time acousto-optical transmission resonances in a non-silica fiber. The resonances, generated in highly nonlinear, single-mode Chalcogenide (As2Se3) fiber, are up to -9 dB deep and tunable over 235 nm around 1450 nm by varying the frequency of an acoustic wave propagating in the fiber, creating a variable period long period grating. The material properties of Chalcogenide modify the acoustic wave propagation leading to a different frequency range of operation when compared to Silica fiber. A tunable resonant structure in this medium opens up possibilities for all-optical processing and mid-IR applications.

(i) Periodically stressed fiber, with microbends of period matching the intermodal beat length, to couple light from the core mode LP01 into the first cladding mode LP11. (ii) Vectorial representation of the phase matching condition showing the propagation vectors for each mode and the requirements for the long period grating to allow coupling.

Experimental set-up. An amplified signal generator excites a PZT at around 1 MHz and up to 130 Vp-p. An Aluminum cone matches the longitudinal mechanical vibration of the 5 mm dia. PZT into the optical fiber. The fiber is vibrated transversely leading to a flexural acoustic wave propagating out in both directions along the fiber. A broadband e-led source is coupled into the core mode of the fiber and the transmitted light is monitored on an OSA.

Acousto-optic resonance at 1528 nm excited by an acoustic flexural wave with frequency 870 kHz. By changing the voltage applied to the PZT, the depth of the resonance may be varied from -0.6 dB through to -9.2 dB.
