Abstract

The spectral distributions of 8-psec ultrashort laser pulses propagating through multimode glass fibers were measured and compared with those of single-mode fibers at comparable intensities. In multimode optical fibers the spectral broadening arising from self-phase modulation was found to be asymmetric to the Stokes side owing to modal dispersion.
