    Keywords : nonlinear distortion; optical pulse shaping; dispersion-management; eye-diagram; cross-phase modulation; optical sampling; optical fiber applications; multiplexing; parametric amplification; demultiplexing; optical pulses; fiber optical communication; nonlinear systems; time division multiplexing; four-wave mixing; polarization-mode dispersion; optical signal processing; fiber optical nonlinearities; fiber ring laser; soliton robustness; mode-locking; optical filters; networks;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with short optical pulse generation from actively mode-locked Erbium-doped fiber ring lasers (ML-EFRL) and their applications in all-optical signal processing (optical sampling and switching) and transmission experiments for high-capacity fiber optic systems. In future ultra-high bit-rate optical time division multiplexed (OTDM) systems, one of the key requirements is to develop reliable optical pulse sources that can generate high quality optical pulses.

    Abstract : This thesis presents HELIOS, an in-house laboratory for time-resolved pump-probe spectroscopy with extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) probe radiation. A wide span of pump wavelengths can be generated using commercial laser equipment while XUV probe radiation is generated via a high harmonic generation process in a noble gas delivering probe photons with energies between 20 eV and 72 eV.

  3. 3. Time-Resolved Photoemission Electron Microscopy: Development and Applications

    Author : Lukas Wittenbecher; NanoLund: Center for Nanoscience; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PEEM; time-resolved PEEM; ultrafast optics; pulse shaping; plasmonics; semiconductor nanowires; hot electrons; ultrafast microscopy; charge carrier relaxation;

    Abstract : Time-resolved photoemission electron microscopy (TR-PEEM) belongs to a class of experimental techniquescombining the spatial resolution of electron-based microscopy with the time resolution of ultrafast opticalspectroscopy. This combination provides insight into fundamental processes on the nanometer spatial andfemto/picosecond time scale, such as charge carrier transport in semiconductors or collective excitations ofconduction band electrons at metal surfaces.

  4. 4. Towards the Limits of Nonlinearity Compensation for Fiber-Optic Channels

    Author : Naga Vishnukanth Irukulapati; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Viterbi algorithm; fiber-optic channel; stochastic digital backpropagation; performance limits; factor graphs; near-MAP detector; Digital backpropagation; nonlinear compensation; mutual information;

    Abstract : The performance of long-haul coherent optical systems is fundamentally limited by fiber nonlinearity and its interplay with chromatic dispersion and noise. Due to nonlinearity, the signal propagating through the fiber interacts with itself and with the noise generated from the inline amplifiers. READ MORE
