Abstract in Spanish

Las fibras ópticas no lineales son un excelente medio para modificar las características de la luz, como por ejemplo su longitud de onda o su espectro, mediante distintos procesos de mezclado de frecuencias o modulación de fase. Entre las aplicaciones de dichas fibras se destaca la generación de supercontinuo: luz intensa y coherente de espectro ancho, de particular interés en áreas tales como la bióloga, la metróloga y las comunicaciones ópticas. Generalmente, la propagación de luz clásica en las fibras no lineales se describe mediante la generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation (GNLSE), una aproximación de las ecuaciones de Maxwell que produce resultados consistentes y que permite su simulación numérica con un esfuerzo computacional razonable. Esta tesis se enfoca en la aplicación de la GNLSE en nuevos tipos de fibra, cuyas propiedades ópticas no lineales varan sensiblemente con la longitud de onda; en estos casos la GNLSE predice resultados físicamente inconsistentes. Partiendo de la teoría cuántica de las fibras no lineales se deriva una nueva ecuación de propagación, de complejidad computacional comparable a la de la GNLSE, pero adecuada para modelar estos nuevos tipos de fibra con resultados físicamente aceptables.

Abstract in English

Nonlinear optical fibers are a suitable medium to produce engineered light with singular features, such as wavelength ranges which are otherwise not achievable with conventional optical sources. A remarkable case is portrayed by supercontinuum generation, that is, high intensity and coherent light with a broad spectrum, nding applications in biology, metrology, and optical communications. The nonlinear ber theory is based on the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation (GNLSE), a simplication of Maxwell equations that lends to tractable numerical simulations. This thesis is focused on the application of the GNLSE to novel nonlinear bers whose nonlinearity is strongly dependent on the optical frequency; this equation is shown to produce unphysical results when applied to this new kind of fibers. In order to circumvent this problem, we start from a quantum theory of nonlinear fibers to derive a new propagation equation, preserving the numerical complexity of the GNLSE, but being suitable for modeling fibers with an arbitrary nonlinearity.
