Abstract

The phase-matching curves for the four-wave mixing effect of Bragg scattering in two fibers with opposite sign β4 dispersion coefficients have been measured experimentally. The measured phase-matching curves are in good agreement with theoretical expectations, and their dependence on several key parameters has been determined.

Sample spectrum displaying the type of interference that can occur between MI and Bragg scattering during a wavelength conversion experiment.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Theoretical Bragg scattering phase-matching curves with the response of the curves to the variation of frequency detunings and dispersion parameters. Using the solid curves as the basis, the dashed curves display the response to the change of ω b , while the dotted curves display the response to a change in the ratio of β 2 β 4 . The curves are representative of the four participating waves, which are interchangeable so long as the distribution of the pumps remains asymmetrical about the ZDW.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Phase-matching curves for Bragg scattering in both a negative and positive β 4 fiber (left and right, respectively). The discrete points are the measured data, and solid and dashed lines are the theoretical fit from which the dispersion parameters are recovered. Two curves were measured in the positive β 4 fiber with different values of ω b .
