This new publication is entitled "40-GHz pulse source based on XPM-induced focusing in normally dispersive optical fibers"
by J. Nuño, M. Gilles, M. Guasoni, B. Kibler, C. Finot & J. Fatome
In this contribution, we theoretically and experimentally investigate the design of a high-repetition rate source delivering well-separated optical pulses due to the nonlinear compression of a dual-frequency beat signal within a cavity-less normally dispersive fiber-based setup.
