Abstract
In this paper we present an experimental characterization of a highly nonlinear silica fiber. It includes the determination of the fiber effective nonlinear parameter using the nonlinear four-wave mixing process. From the experimental results, a value γ = 10.6 W−1 km−1 has been obtained for the nonlinear parameter in the co-polarized case, which was reduced to γ = 9.4 W−1 km−1 in the case of a decorrelated state of polarization between pump and signal waves. A threshold power of 17.8mW was found for the stimulated Brillouin scattering process. A Raman gain curve extending over a frequency range of 25 THz, with a peak value shifted by 13.1 THz from the pump frequency, was also measured.
