Research output: Patent

Abstract

A nonlinear optical device, comprises a source of input light having a first spectrum and an optical fibre 10 arranged so that in use the light propagates through the fibre 10, the optical fibre 10 comprises a tapered region including a waist 30, the waist 30 having a diameter smaller than 10 microns for a length of more than 20 mm, wherein the propagating light is converted by nonlinear optical processes into output light having a spectrum different from the first spectrum.
