Modulation instability, Akhmediev Breathers and continuous wave supercontinuum generation

Dudley, J M; Genty, G; Dias, F; Kibler, B; Akhmediev, Nail


Numerical simulations of the onset phase of continuous wave supercontinuum generation from modulation instability show that the structure of the field as it develops can be interpreted in terms of the properties of Akhmediev Breathers. Numerical and analytical results are compared with experimental measurements of spectral broadening in photonic crystal fiber using nanosecond pulses.
