Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We experimentally investigated optical Kerr gating effect by co-propagating a pump beam and a weak signal beam in a nonlinear photonic crystal fiber. It is shown that optical Kerr gating can be observed by using femtosecond pump pulses with only a few milliwatts of average power.
