Broadband telecom to mid-infrared supercontinuum generation in a dispersion-engineered silicon germanium waveguide
We demonstrate broadband supercontinuum generation (SCG) in a dispersion-engineered silicon-germanium waveguide. The 3 cm long waveguide is pumped by femtosecond pulses at 2.4 µm, and the generated supercontinuum extends from 1.45 to 2.79 µm (at the -30dB point). The broadening is mainly driven by the generation of a dispersive wave in the 1.5–1.8 µm region and soliton fission. The SCG was modeled numerically, and excellent agreement with the experimental results was obtained.

Abstract

We demonstrate broadband supercontinuum generation (SCG) in a dispersion-engineered silicon-germanium waveguide. The 3 cm long waveguide is pumped by femtosecond pulses at 2.4 µm, and the generated supercontinuum extends from 1.45 to 2.79 µm (at the -30dB point). The broadening is mainly driven by the generation of a dispersive wave in the 1.5–1.8 µm region and soliton fission. The SCG was modeled numerically, and excellent agreement with the experimental results was obtained.
