Have you ever wondered how to include noise into your simulations, calculate temporal coherence properties or interpret the results of your simulations? In this webinar hosted by the Fiber Modeling and Fabrication Technical Group, Professor Alexander Heidt of University of Bern will discuss how to develop simulation codes for modelling the nonlinear propagation of ultrashort laser pulses in optical fibers.
