Abstract

We show that, by properly adjusting the relative state of polarization of the pump and of a weak modulation, with a frequency such that at least one of its even harmonics falls within the band of modulation instability, one obtains a fully modulated wave at the second or higher even harmonic of the initial modulation. An application of this principle to the generation of an 80 GHz optical pulse train with high extinction ratio from a 40 GHz weakly modulated pump is experimentally demonstrated using a nonzero dispersion-shifted fiber in the telecom C band.
