Abstract

A new phase-matching condition for a four-wave-mixing (FWM) experiment in an optical fiber is proposed to simultaneously measure the linear and nonlinear optical properties of an optical fiber such as dispersion-zero wavelength, dispersion slop, and nonlinear refractive index. Several different dispersion shifted fibers (DSFs) and nonzero dispersion shifted fibers (NZDSFs) were tested to demonstrate the validity of our proposed method. We have also shown that experimental results are in good agreement with those obtained using a conventional measurement method. We believe that technique is a very powerful and efficient tool for zero-dispersion and dispersion slop mapping for already installed optical fibers.
