NONLINEAR REFRACTION EFFECTS IN FIBRE-OPTIC RESONATORS.

Abstract

The propagation constant of an optical fibre shows a small dependence on the optical intensity which can lead to large effects when accumulated over long fibre lengths. One such effect is soliton formation, but in this talk two other phenomena are discussed. First of these is nonlinear reciprocity. Second is that the nonlinear phase shift can change the resonance condition in a fibre-optic ring or Fabry-Perot resonator.
