Many nonlinear photonic technologies are already weaved into the operation of commercial systems. Nonlinearity is an essential component in the design of numerous photonic devices, but it is often shunned by engineers in view of its practical intractability and greatly increased difficulty of comprehension of system behavior. The understanding and mastering of nonlinear effects can translate into improving performance of the existing devices and enabling a new generation of engineering concepts. Our recent work on nonlinear science of fibre lasers and optical communications systems will be reviewed.
