Mid-IR supercontinuum generation from non-silica microstructured optical fibers

Mid-IR supercontinuum generation from non-silica microstructured optical fibers
Mid-IR supercontinuum generation from non-silica microstructured optical fibers
In this paper, the properties of nonsilica glasses and the related technology for microstructured fiber fabrication are reviewed. Numerical simulation results are shown using the properties of nonsilica microstructured fibers for mid-infrared (mid-IR) supercontinuum generation when seeding with near-IR, 200 fs pump pulses. In particular, bismuth glass small-core fibers that have two zero-dispersion wavelengths (ZDWs) are investigated, and efficient mid-IR generation is enabled by phase-matching of a 2.0 µm seed across the upper ZDW into the 3-4.5 µm wavelength range. Fiber lengths considered were 40 mm. Simulation results for a range of nonsilica large-mode fibers are also shown for comparison.

Abstract

In this paper, the properties of nonsilica glasses and the related technology for microstructured fiber fabrication are reviewed. Numerical simulation results are shown using the properties of nonsilica microstructured fibers for mid-infrared (mid-IR) supercontinuum generation when seeding with near-IR, 200 fs pump pulses. In particular, bismuth glass small-core fibers that have two zero-dispersion wavelengths (ZDWs) are investigated, and efficient mid-IR generation is enabled by phase-matching of a 2.0 µm seed across the upper ZDW into the 3-4.5 µm wavelength range. Fiber lengths considered were 40 mm. Simulation results for a range of nonsilica large-mode fibers are also shown for comparison.
