Modulational instability of few-cycle pulses in optical fibers
Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati - Guwahati-781039, Assam, India
Accepted: 4 October 2010
We investigate the modulation instability of a mathematical model appropriate for few-cycle optical pulses with pulse duration as short as one carrier oscillation cycle in the context of a standard silica fiber operating at the telecommunication wavelength, 1550 nm. Propagation of soliton-like few-cycle pulses in the medium is subject to the fulfillment of the modulation instability criteria.
