Dissipative nonlinear structures in optical fiber systems II: self-similar parabolic pulses in active fibers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this second talk on dissipative structures in fiber applications, we overview theoretical aspects of the generation, evolution and characterization of self-similar parabolic-shaped pulses in fiber amplifier media. In particular, we present a perturbation analysis that describes the structural changes induced by third-order fiber dispersion on the parabolic pulse solution of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with gain. Promising applications of parabolic pulses in optical signal post-processing and regeneration in communication systems are also discussed.
