Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical phenomena in optical fibers are finding a variety of applications. This paper reviews some of these applications which can be either useful or undesirable. Useful applications are the amplification and generation of different optical frequencies or the production and shaping of ultrashort optical pulses. Undesirable applications would include the signal degradation which nonlinear phenomena could introduce in long single-mode optical-fiber transmission systems.
