Abstract

We report experimental and theoretical studies of Raman-induced cross-phase modulational instabilities (XPMI) in a high-birefringence, normally dispersive optical fiber. Experimental results reveal that the Raman–Stokes wave, generated by a quasi-CW pump beam, interacts with the latter to create a novel type of XPMI sidebands. These sidebands are characterized by a narrow gain bandwidth. The sideband frequencies are well reproduced by a linear stability analysis as well as by full numerical solutions of the coupled generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equations.
