Abstract

We show that electrostriction contributes significantly to self-action effects in optical fibers, adding 19% to the nonlinear refractive index for fields that vary slowly compared with the ~ 1-ns time scale of the acoustic response. Electrostriction also modifies the tensor nature of the nonlinear-optical response. The electrostrictive nonlinearity is the origin of the observed difference between measurements of n2 with cw and mode-locked lasers.
