Abstract

The presence of refractive index fluctuations in an optical medium can result in the generation of optical rogue waves (RWs). Using numerical simulations and statistical analysis, we have shown that the probability of optical rogue waves increases in the presence of spatial correlations in the fluctuations of the refractive index. We have analyzed the impact of the magnitude and the spatial correlation length of these fluctuations on the probability of optical rogue wave generation.
