Nonlinear Fibre-Based Photonic Technologies

Description

The field of photonics is one of the fastest growing research areas in modern science, having a direct and almost immediate impact on the development of new technologies in fields ranging from telecommunications to biosciences. Photonics is effectively an interdisciplinary field at the interface of physics, material science, and engineering and is very strongly linked to the field of nonlinear science. Over the last decades, there has been growing recognition of physical systems in which nonlinearity introduces rich variety of fundamentally new properties that can never be observed in linear models or implemented in linear devices. The understanding and mastering of nonlinear physical systems has the potential to enable a new generation of engineering concepts. Nonlinear phenomena occurring in optical fibres have many attractive features and great, but not yet fully explored, potential for the design of advanced optical communication systems, laser systems, and processing devices. While such nonlinear effects lead to transmission impairments, being a source of signal waveform degradation in the transmission path, they can also have a favourable impact. By making positive use of the fibre nonlinearities, it is possible to realize a variety of optical functions that have practical applications in the field of light-wave technology.

We invite authors to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that describe recent results and advances in developing novel photonic approaches, techniques, systems, and devices exploiting nonlinear effects in optical fibres. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • All-optical signal processing and regeneration in ultrafast telecommunications
  • Optical gating, switching, and frequency conversion
  • Optical waveform generation and pulse shaping
  • Optical parametric amplification
  • Raman amplifiers and lasers
  • High-power pulsed and continuous-wave lasers, beam combining, and shaping
  • Broadband and super-continuum light sources

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijo/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
