Abstract

Holey fibers combine two-dimensional microstructuring with one-dimensional longitudinal propagation, resulting in fibers with tailorable dispersive and nonlinear properties. We measure the effective nonlinearity of a typical holey fiber. The small effective area that is possible in this type of fiber significantly enhances its effective nonlinearity relative to standard fiber.
