Universal spectral dynamics of modulation instability: Theory, simulation, experiment

Hammani, K; Wetzel, B; Kibler, B; Fatome, Julien; Finot, Christophe; Akhmediev, Nail; Dudley, John M


A central process of nonlinear fibre optics is modulation instability (MI), where weak perturbations on a continuous wave are amplified to generate a parametric cascade of spectral sidebands. Although studied for many years, it has only been recently appreciated that MI dynamics can be described analytically by Akhmediev breather (AB) solutions to the nonlinear Schrdinger equation (NLSE) [1]. This has led to important results, including the first observation of the Peregrine Soliton [2]. AB...[Show more]
