Paper Abstract

Until recently, optical fibers were used in optical communication systems only as a passive transmission medium. However the discovery of refractive index photoinduced gratings and second-order nonlinearity together with the development of fibers with length-varying dispersion allows the processing of information during its transmission along fibers.
