Modulation instability at high frequencies has been demonstrated in the normal dispersion regime by use of a photonic crystal fiber. This fiber-optic parametric generator provides efficient conversion of red pump light into blue and near-infrared light.

Output spectra obtained as the pump polarization was adjusted when the feedback was blocked. The pump power was 160 W. Similar spectra at a lower pump power can be obtained when the pump operates as an optical parametric oscillator at a fixed pump polarization.
