Domain walls are topological defects which nucleate at symmetry breaking phase transitions. Albeit domain walls are intensively studied in ferromagnetic materials, in which they describe the transition among neighbouring regions of oppositely aligned magnetic dipoles, their equivalent in optics have been poorly exploited so far. Here, we report on the existence of a universal class of polarization domain walls in conventional optical fibres. We capture the symbiotic nature of those entities for which fast polarization knots lead to two robust anticorrelated coupled twin-waves. We exploit their binding properties for optical data transmission beyond the Kerr limits of normally dispersive fibres. More fundamentally, we highlight their trapping behaviour, which manifests itself as a remarkable phenomenon of spontaneous polarization segregation in a system of incoherent random waves, in analogy with the ferromagnetic order–disorder phase transition. These results constitute the first experimental observation of kink/antikink solitary wave propagation in nonlinear fibre optics.

Recent research has been focused on the ability to manipulate a light beam in such a way to hide, namely to cloak, an event over a finite time or localization in space. The main idea is to create a hole or a gap in the spatial or time domain so as to allow for an object or data to be kept hidden for a while and then to be restored. By enlarging the field of applications of this concept to telecommunications, researchers have recently reported the possibility to hide transmitted data in an optical fibre. Here we report the first experimental demonstration of perpetual temporal spying and blinding process of optical data in fibre-optic transmission line based on polarization bypass. We successfully characterize the performance of our system by alternatively copying and then concealing 100% of a 10-Gbit/s transmitted signal.

Waves that tend to steepen and then break beyond are familiar phenomena encountered in nature, looking for instance sea waves approaching a coast. Less common scenarios are the formation of a vertical front followed by the spontaneous emission of fast expanding wave trains, so called undular bores or dispersive shock waves. Spectacular evidences of such type of behaviors in nature are atmospheric gravity waves: “morning glory clouds” or large tidal waves traveling up-stream river estuaries: “the Mascaret”. The basic ingredients underlying such phenomena are the nonlinearity of the medium that induces the initial steepening combined with a weak dispersion that drives the undular bore formation in nearly conservative conditions. Such regime can be also encountered for light waves, e.g. for an intense pulse propagating along an optical fiber with normal chromatic dispersion or for a laser beam propagating in a medium with nonlinear response of defocusing type. In this paper, we report the first experimental observation of optical undular bores in a fiber-based system. We present strong evidence for a novel dynamics where the overall optical field behaves as a fluid undergoing the formation of an array of twin shock points from which multiple temporal undular bores emerge, forming a complex pattern due to unavoidable collisions of adjacent undular bores.

The Peregrine soliton in nonlinear fibre optics

The Peregrine Soliton is a localized nonlinear structure predicted to exist over 25 years ago, but not so far experimentally observed in any physical system. It is of fundamental significance because it is localized in both time and space, and because it defines the limit of a wide class of solutions to the nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLSE). In this contribution, we use an analytic description of NLSE breather propagation to implement experiments in optical fibre generating femtosecond pulses with near-ideal temporal Peregrine Soliton characteristics. In showing that Peregrine Soliton characteristics appear with initial conditions that do not correspond to the mathematical ideal, our results may impact widely on studies of hydrodynamic wave instabilities where the Peregrine Soliton is considered a freak wave prototype.
