Abstract

We derive the system of equations describing the nonlinear interaction, associated with the optical Kerr effect, among the four forward- and backward-propagating modes in a straight single-mode fiber. This allows us, in particular, to obtain the set of equations governing nonlinear evolution in a highly twisted fiber of the corresponding copropagating and counterpropagating right and left circularly polarized modes.
