Abstract

An octave-spanning supercontinuum is generated in a hydrogenated amorphous silicon core fiber when pumped in the mid-infrared regime. The broadband wavelength conversion which extends from the edge of the telecommunications band into the mid-infrared (1.64-3.37µm) is generated by four-wave mixing (FWM) and subsequent pulse break-up, facilitated by the high material nonlinear figure of merit and the anomalous dispersion of the relatively small 1.7µm diameter core fiber. The FWM sidebands and corresponding supercontinuum can be tuned through the pump parameters, and show good agreement with the predicted phase-matching curves for the fiber.
