Paper Abstract

We investigate linear and nonlinear light propagation in the multicore fiber. Such a structure, with a periodic modulation of refractive index in one-dimension, allows for the study of discrete optical phenomena. Light intensity distribution in such structure changes with propagation length and also depends on the input beam position. Additionaly, in nonlinear regime it changes with the increase of light power. We present both theoretical and experimental results on the nonlinear light propagation in the silica multicore fiber, where the near infrared wavelength from femtosecund laser Ti:Saphire propagates in a distance of a few centimeters.
