Getting there:
Comment s’y rendre :
Research in nonlinear fiber optics is currently undergoing dramatic expansion, motivated both by advances and
developments in new classes of optical fiber, and the availability of sophisticated numerical modelling
techniques. This work will present a survey of selected recent works in this field, surveying in particular the
dramatic results achieved in the last decade since the first observation of supercontinuum generation in photonic
crystal fiber. Results covered will include spectral broadening mechanisms, self-similar evolution of optical
pulses in optical fiber amplifiers, pulse compression in photonic bandgap fibers, and dynamical effects in optical
Originally from Otahuhu in New Zealand, John Dudley received B.Sc and Ph.D. degrees from the University of
Auckland in 1987 and 1992 respectively. In 1992 and 1993, he carried out postdoctoral research at the
University of St Andrews in Scotland before taking a lecturing position in in 1994 at the University of Auckland.
In 2000, he was appointed Professor at the University of Franche-Comté in Besançon, France, where he heads
the Optoelectronics and Photonics research group. He was named a member of the Institut Universitaire de
France in 2005 and elected a Fellow of the Optical Society of America in 2007. He is an IEEE LEOS
Distinguished Lecturer for the period 2008-2009.
