    Abstract: In this research a design for high power linearly polarized all-fiber linear cavity lasers with self-mode-locking is presented, and a new theoretical model based on a Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation (NLSE) is developed and implemented on the MATLAB platform. For the design of cavity, Polarization Maintaining (PM) fibers for both the gain medium and ... Show More

    Abstract: Photonics properties of glasses can be designed by controlling their complex Kerr nonlinearity. Chemical structure and bonding properties are considered as the origin of glass third-order susceptibilities. Investigation of the role of orbital hybridization on the glass electronic polarizability and third-order susceptibility is carried out. Thus, s... Show More
