      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We aim to study the nonlinear optical phenomena with ultra-broadband radiation in photonic crystal fibre (PCF). While PCFs with cores made from different glasses are well studied in previous works, in this paper, it is planned to investigate the dynamics of nonlinear processes of supercontinuum generation (SCG) in liquid-filled PCF (LCPCF) to understand the physical phenomena of femtosecond pulse propagation, particularly, the temporal and spectral changes of the pulse propagating through specific PCFs. Since the CS2-filled LCPCF has complex nonlinear phenomena, we intend to analyse the role of saturable nonlinear response and slow nonlinear response on SCG in detail. For the physical explanation, soliton fission and modulational instability techniques will be implemented to investigate the impact of slow nonlinear response and saturable nonlinear response respectively, in SCG process.

      A theoretical analysis of modulational instability (MI) of optical pulses propagating near the zero dispersion wavelength of a lossless fibre with the effect of delayed saturable nonlinear response is presented. We calculate the exact dispersion relation with the effect of higher dispersion for the harmonic perturbation. We analysed the impact of fourth-order dispersion effects in the MI spectrum. We examine the possibility of MI in both dispersion regimes, regardless of the sign of the group velocity dispersion.

    • Soliton fission and supercontinuum generation in photonic crystal fibre for optical coherence tomography application

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We present a practical design of novel photonic crystal fibre (PCF) to investigate the nonlinear propagation of femtosecond pulses for the application of optical coherence tomography (OCT) based on supercontinuum generation (SCG) process. In addition, this paper contains a brief introduction of the physical phenomena of soliton and SCG. Typically, here we discuss how the ultrabroadband radiation in PCF can be generated by SCG through various nonlinear effects of the fibre. To accomplish the proposed aim, we put forth liquid core PCF (LCPCF) structure filled with chloroform for OCT measurements of the eye. From the proposed design, we observe that proposed LCPCFs with liquid material exhibit significant broadened wavelength spectrum with low input pulse energy over small propagation distances for the OCT application.
