Paper Abstract

Cross-phase modulation (XPM) occurs when copropagating ultrafast pulses interact in a nonlinear optical medium. XPM effects are being investigated as a new technique for controlling with femtosecond time response the spectral, temporal and spatial properties of ultrafast pulses. This paper describes theory and measurements of XPM effects bulk glasses, optical fibers and semiconductor ZnSe crystals.
