Simultaneous spatial and spectral transparency in ultralong fiber lasers

Ania-Castañón, Juan D., Karalekas, Vassileios, Harper, Paul and Turitsyn, Sergei (2008). Simultaneous spatial and spectral transparency in ultralong fiber lasers. Physical Review Letters, 101 (12),


We demonstrate that ultralong Raman lasers can be used to generate a transmission medium with simultaneous transparency over the spatial and the spectral domains. Numerical calculations show this cross-domain transparency to be preserved when the medium is used for transmitting high-intensity signals, which makes ultralong lasers an ideal experimental test bed for the study of multifrequency nonlinear interactions in optical fiber waveguides. Full spatiospectral transparency is experimentally obtained over a 20 nm x 20 km window.
