Abstract

Using cross-correlation frequency-resolved optical gating, we observe the phase-sensitive resonance in the interaction of a soliton with a continuous wave in a photonic crystal fiber. This interaction strongly depends on the difference in the phase velocities of the orthogonally polarized fiber modes and leads to generation of a new spectral peak. The spectral and temporal structure of this signal is revealed in our measurements, which are supported by analytical theory and numerical simulations.
