Abstract : Modulational Instability (MI) is one of the most beautiful nonlinear effects in optical fibers. MI causes the exponential amplification of small temporal perturbations of the cw pump radiation. In spectral domain, Stokes and anti-Stokes components are exponentially amplified at the frequency shifts determined by pump intensity. Depending on the polarization properties of optical fibers various types of MI can be observed both in the regions of positive and negative fiber group velocity dispersion (GVD).
