Nonlinear discrete wavefront shaping for spatiotemporal pulse compression with multicore fibers

Abstract

In this work, we apply an effective discrete phase front focusing method to control the coherent combining and temporal compression of laser pulses by means of nonlinear multicore fibers. We numerically demonstrate the possibility of combining almost entirely the input optical pulses injected in all cores, into the central core of a hexagonal lattice multicore fiber. We investigate the optimal operational conditions for the most effective pulse combining and analyze the influence of a positive input pulse temporal chirp and spatial phase modulation. We demonstrate that a pulse, which has been focused into an arbitrary core of the fiber, also undergoes temporal compression.
