6. Conclusion We have seen that the temporal SPM and the concomitant spectral broadening of light arise because an intense optical field can induce an appreciable refractive index change Dn in a medium. The theory of pure SPM is, in principle, quite straightforward. If the input pulse intensity is not very strong, the zeroth-order approximation taking into account only the direct contribution of Dn to the induced phase change Df should already give a fairly good description. The next-order approximation including the self-steepening effect on both Df and the amplitude pulse should satisfactorily cover the cases of strong SPM with spectral superbroadening.
