25 results. The waveguide effect further modifies chromatic dispersion. That contribution is called waveguide dispersion. Essentially, the phase delay per unit length is influenced by the optical confinement of the modes, and that effect depends both on the propagation mode and the wavelength. It is generally stronger for waveguides with small mode areas, and it can be influenced via the details of the refractive index profile of the fiber core. ) Chromatic dispersion is particularly important in situations where ultrashort optical pulses, or other kinds of signals with a temporally fast variation, are transmitted through a fiber.
Other techniques can be applied in photonic crystal fibers (p. 55). 32 Optical Fiber Technology: Nonlinear Effects in Fibers Overview on Fiber Nonlinearities At sufficiently low optical intensities, light propagation is linear. In this regime, doubling the input power into a fiber will simply double the output power and not change anything else. More generally, the combination of different inputs leads to outputs where the complex amplitudes of all input contributions are simply added. The same holds for the electric polarization of the medium.
Certain core dopants such as germania (GeO2) affect both the peak gain and the shape of the gain spectrum. For ultrashort pulses and broadband signals, the simple equations of the previous page are not appropriate. Instead, one can set up a more complicated differential equation involving a Raman response function. Stimulated Raman scattering in fibers is mainly used in low-noise Raman amplifiers for telecom signals and in Raman fiber lasers, allowing conversion of optical power to somewhat longer wavelengths.
