Abstract

Frequency-shifted dispersive optical waves generated as a result of soliton dynamics of 30-fs Ti: sapphire-laser pulses in an array of waveguiding wires, implemented on a platform of a photonic-crystal fiber (PCF), are shown to produce regular stable interference patterns with high visibility, indicating a high coherence of frequency-shifted fields. For a hexagonal array of waveguides built into a silica PCF, the field intensity at the main peak of a six-beam interference pattern was found to be a factor of 22 higher than the intensity of a frequency-shifted signal from an individual waveguide in the array and 3.7 times higher than the field intensity attainable through an incoherent superposition of the same fields.

(b) Spectra of Ti: sapphire-laser pulses transmitted through two adjacent microchannel waveguides in the hexagonal unit cell of the PCF cladding are shown by filled and open circles. The dashed line shows the spectrum of the input pulse.

Experimental (a) and computer-simulated (b) two-beam interference patterns produced by 460-nm frequency-shifted signals from two adjacent waveguides in the hexagonal waveguide array. (c) One-dimensional cut of the two-beam interference pattern produced by 460-nm frequency-shifted signals: (filled circles) experimental results, (dashed line) simulations for two fully coherent sources of 460-nm radiation.

Experimental (a) and computer-simulated (b) six-beam interference patterns produced by 460-nm frequency-shifted signals from the hexagonal waveguide array. Simulations were performed for a hexagonal array of fully coherent identical radiation sources with σ ij =0, δ ij =0,E i =E 0, and Ī6 = 6I 0 ; x and y are the transverse coordinates in the plane of the interference pattern and L is the distance from this plane to the end of the fiber. (c) Experimental multibeam interference pattern generated by an array of channel waveguides with slightly different geometries.
