Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical effects in fibers can affect the intensity and spectral characteristics of an optical signal, thus present power transmission limitations. On the other hand, one can make use of nonlinear optics in fibers for efficient frequency conversion and generation of new frequencies which are important for fiber-optics studies and measurements. In this paper we review the use of single-mode fibers for near-infrared frequency conversion in the 1.1-1.7 μm spectral region by stimulated Raman scattering, tunable Raman oscillation, and stimulated, phase-matched four-photon parametric mixing, and discuss their applications.
