Abstract : The appearance of modulational sidebands building up from noise has been reported when an intense cw or quasi-cw propagates in a fiber in the anomalous dispersion regime. The modulation transforms the input wave into a train of pulses with ultra-high repetition rate. This process may be stimulated by seeding incoherently (i.e., by means of a different weak detuned laser) the modulational instability (MI).
