Paper Abstract

The generation of high energy, wavelength-tuned supercontinuum sources has been investigated numerically. A stable wavelength-tunable soliton source was first obtained by compressing a pulse with a parabolic shape in a dispersion decreasing fiber. Subsequently, a widely tunable supercontinuum was generated by propagating the resulting soliton in a highly nonlinear silica fiber. In this paper, we have also investigated the influence of the width, the initial chirps, and the pulse shape of the compressed pulse on the generation of the supercontinuum.
