Abstract

We investigate numerically and experimentally the spectral correlation between multiple modulation instability (MI) side lobes in a dispersion oscillating fiber. By leveraging the dispersive Fourier transformation, we acquire instantaneous spectra and investigate the energy correlation between individual MI sidebands through scattergrams. We found that conjugate MI side lobes are strongly correlated while other combinations experience a very low degree of correlation, revealing that parametric processes related to each side lobe pair act quasi-independently.

  19. Note that here we do not plot the scattergram between first-order MI Stokes (anti-Stokes) and second-order MI anti-Stokes (Stokes) as it would be similar to the ones depicted in Figs. 2(e) and 2(f) due to the high degree of correlation between conjugate MI sidebands.
