Abstract
This paper reviews silica glass based nonlinear optical fiber designs for signal processing using optical Kerr effect. The requirements for designing nonlinear fibers are described first. Then the design concept is discussed and design examples are shown to illustrate the tradeoffs among the different fiber properties such as effective area, dispersion and attenuation. Furthermore, fiber designs with distributed Brillouin frequency shift to mitigate the effect of simulated Brillouin scattering in nonlinear fibers are discussed in detail. SBS threshold increase of 7 dB over conventional nonlinear fibers is experimentally demonstrated.
