Nanomanaging dispersion, nonlinearity, and gain of photonic-crystal fibers

Abstract

Arrays of submicron air holes are shown to modify the properties of guided modes in optical fibers, enabling a fine tuning of fiber dispersion, nonlinearity, and gain. We demonstrate fiber dispersion nanomanagement solutions that provide ultra-flattened group-velocity dispersion profiles and control the fiber nonlinearity and gain.
