Paper Abstract

Metallic nanoparticles, of a few nanometers radii, show nonlinearities that are the object of experimental and theoretical studies, in particular in the framework of composites. A quantum mechanical analysis of such structures predict a Kerr type nonlinearity, however quite a recent publication on a classical approach has shown that a classical metallic nanoparticles composite shows a nonlinearity proportional to the electric field amplitude, not to the intensity as is in the Kerr case. The capability of filling up the core of a piece fiber with such composites open the possibility of preparing long enough pieces of fiber with such a composite as well as the straightforward drawing of a fiber doped with nanoparticles. In this work we carry on the numerical simulation on such class of fibers, with the specific aim of looking at the corresponding soliton propagation in an optical fiber with a core doped metal nanoparticles.
