Soliton spectral tunneling in dispersion controlled holey fibers

By F. Poletti, P. Horak and D.J. Richardson


We design a number of index-guiding holey fibers with relatively simple structure which possess suitable dispersive properties for the observation of soliton spectral tunneling. Although the fabrication tolerances for these fibers are demanding, numerical simulations show that tunneling across a normal dispersion region of 150 nm width when pumped in the near infrared is in principle possible using just a few meters of these fibers
