Generation of a Train of Soliton Pulses by Induced Modulational Instability in Optical Fibers

Opt Lett. 1984 Jul 1;9(7):288-90. doi: 10.1364/ol.9.000288.


The modulational instability of a cw optical signal in a glass fiber combined with an externally applied amplitude modulation can be utilized to produce a train of optical solitons with a wide range of pulse width (50-1 psec) and repetition period ( less, similar250 psec).
