Cross-phase modulation instability in photonic crystal fibers.

We report on the observation of cross-phase modulation instability in a highly nonlinear photonic crystal fiber. In such fibers the presence of higher orders of dispersion results in a complex phase-matching curve. We are able to observe this behavior experimentally and obtain excellent agreement between the measured and predicted shifts.
