Optical Solitons and Frequency Comb Generation - Abstract

Characterisation of solitons in fibre lasers

Understanding of the properties of nonlinear photonic systems is important both for the fundamental science and because of their relevance to numerous applications of light technology, from fibre-optic communication links to high power lasers. However, many measurement techniques and signal processing methods have been developed and optimised for linear systems. In this talk I will discuss our recent works on applications of the machine learning methods and nonlinear Fourier transform to analysis of dynamics of pulses in fibre lasers.
