TOM 8 Non-linear and Quantum Optics

The wide availability of convenient ultrafast real-time measurement techniques has led to greatly renewed interest in the study of nonlinear propagation dynamics and instabilities in optics. In this paper we review our recent work applying these methods to the study of both single-pass fibre propagation, and fibre laser oscillator systems. We focus specifically on the real-time characterization of high-dimensional instabilities that lead to rogue wave emergence.

TOM 8 Non-linear and Quantum Optics

Concurrent passive mode-locked and self-Q-switched operation of laser devices is modeled using the complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau equation. Experimental observations use a passively mode-locked fiber ring laser with a waveguide array as a fast saturable absorber. The shape of each individual self-Q--switched pulse and the periodic trains of pairs of such pulses are in a good qualitative agreement with the numerical results.

TOM 8 Non-linear and Quantum Optics

Ultra-broadband stochastic resonance of light enabled by memory effects in the nonlinear response

We report the first observation of non-Markovian stochastic resonance, using a thermo-optical nonlinear cavity. We find that memory effects attributed to a non-instantaneous nonlinear response could enhance the stochastic resonance bandwidth by a factor of 3000.
