  1. 1. Nonlinear Propagation of Optical Pulses and Beams

    Author : Magnus Karlsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; self-phase modulation; optical wave breaking; paraxial-ray approximation; stimulated Raman scattering; nonlinear Schrödinger equation; optical collapse; modulational instability; higher-order dispersion; optical fibers; saturable nonlinearity; Kerr-nonlinearity; self-trapping; group-velocity dispersion; optical solitons; self-focusing;

    Abstract : The propagation of optical beams and pulses under the influence of nonlinear effects is characterized by a rich variety of phenomena and many potentially important applications. We analyse two main topics in this context: nonlinear beam propagation, and nonlinear pulse propagation in optical fibers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Generation and Transmission of Optical Solitons at Ultrahigh Bit Rates

    Author : Bamdad Bakhshi; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nonlinear optics; chirp-free optical pulses; lowpass filtering; polarization-maintaining fibers; optical communication; optical solitons; Erbium fiber ring laser; dispersion-management; active mode-locking; soliton interactions; erbium-doped fiber amplifier; Gaussian pulses;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the generation and transmission of optical solitons in ultrahigh-speed fiber-optic communication systems. For optical soliton pulses the fiber dispersion and nonlinearity can under certain circumstances cancel each other, thus allowing the solitons to remain undistorted over long distances. READ MORE

  4. 4. Polarization-Mode Disperion in Optical Fibers: Characterization, Transmission Impairments, and Compensation

    Author : Henrik Sunnerud; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
