    We have found that phase-modulation instability of a single pulse due to nonlinearity of the refractive index of an in-cavity medium can cause the pulse to break up into several stable identical pulses of smaller amplitude. We show that if the refractive-index nonlinearity is greater than a...

    Refractive indices of fluoride glass fibers were measured for the first time and a remarkable decrease in the refractive index during fiber fabrication processes has been observed. This decrease is most likely due to the change in the glass structure during fiber drawing and due to the stress...

    Abstract. Third-harmonic generation in a hollow glass fiber has been demonstrated. Ti:sapphire laser pulses 100 fs with a moderate intensity of around 1 x 10[sup 14]W/cm[sup 2] are introduced into a 1.8-cm hollow fiber in room air. From the observation of the third-harmonic beam quality and...

    Complete spectral-line shapes were computed for a modeled Ar-perturbed K spectral line in the impact approximation and in the non-impact regime. Morse potentials were used instead of more representative K/Ar pseudo-potentials because of computation-time restrictions. Our model consisted of an...

    The spectral stability of three guest molecules embedded in a quickly frozen n-tetradecane matrix has been investigated on a single-molecular level at liquid-helium temperature. In total, about 2500 spectral trajectories of 476 terrylene molecules, 328 dibenzanthanthrene molecules, and 252...

    It is generally thought that the various third-order Raman spectroscopic techniques are equivalent to spontaneous Raman scattering, even when inhomogeneous broadening is present. Experimental observations show that certain of these techniques are complementary in certain cases. We give here the...
