Abstract

The possibility of tailoring the guidance properties of optical fibers along the same direction as the evolution of the optical field allows to explore new directions in nonlinear fiber optics. The new degree of freedom offered by axially varying optical fibers enables to revisit well-established nonlinear phenomena and even to discover novel short pulse nonlinear dynamics. Here we study the impact of meter-scale longitudinal variations of group-velocity dispersion on the propagation of bright solitons and on their associated dispersive waves. We show that the longitudinal tailoring of fiber properties allows to observe experimentally unique dispersive wave dynamics, such as the emission of cascaded, multiple, or polychromatic dispersive waves.
