Research | Current

Current work in my laboratory revolves around the nonlinear interactions of light in glass fibers. Research topics includes:


  • the generation of dispersive waves
  • cascaded four wave mixing
  • temporal cavity solitons
  • nonlinear Bragg scattering
  • widely tunable fiber parametric oscillators
  • the interplay of Kerr and Raman nonlinearities in fiber parametric amplifiers
  • incoherently pumped parametric amplifiers
  • high performance OCT sources,
  • and much much more ...
