Abstract

Nonlinear propagation of high-power femtosecond pulses close to the zero-dispersion wavelength of a single-mode optical fiber is studied experimentally and numerically. The roles of four-photon mixing, stimulated Raman scattering, and self-steepening in this process are represented through different extensions of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation.

Experimental–theoretical comparison of the propagated–emitted laser-pulse cross correlation for increasing propagation distances. In the bottom row the broken and solid curves represent the computed cross-correlation and time profiles, respectively. The injected pulses are 106 fs FWHM T0=60.7 fs and 10.7-kW peak power and are assumed to be initially sech2.
