Abstract

We have observed an optical modulation with a period of about 15 fs by beating the anti-stokes wave and the pump wave exiting a photonic crystal fibre. These results confirm the coherence of the sidebands generated by scalar modulation instability in the normal dispersion regime. Future experiments will be conducted to measure the beating of the stokes and the anti-stokes waves.
