  1. 1. Generation and Applications of Picosecond Pulses in High-Capacity Fiber Optic Systems

    Author : Jie Li; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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.

  2. 2. Nonlinear Propagation of Optical Pulses and Beams

    Author : Magnus Karlsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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 University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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. Non-Linear Spatio-Temporal Dynamics of Optical Beams and Pulses in Kerr and Ionizable Media

    Abstract : The present thesis includes results of several investigations concerning the propagation of optical pulses in optical fibers and spatio-temporal beams in optical Kerr media and ionizable media. Both numerical and analytical methods play an important role in the investigations. READ MORE
