17 February 2010 Self-focusing in gain-guided optical fibers and pulse propagation characteristics
Author Affiliations +
We simulate the spatio-temporal pulse propagation in gain-guided (GG) optical fibers. As the pulse propagates and has sufficient energy it will focus quickly in the transverse spatial direction, and eventually collapse into a filament. The pulse is coupled into a single mode fiber to investigate its transmission characteristics.
