Photonic crystal optical fibers for dispersion compensation and Raman amplification: Design and experiment



An optimal design of photonic crystal optical fibers for simultaneous dispersion compensation and Raman amplification is investigated by numerical simulation using the finite-difference simultaneous over-relaxation method. The proposed fiber was fabricated and experimental characterization results are presented. © 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
