Paper Abstract

A 145-m long microstructured optical fiber taper was fabricated on the industry drawing tower. The fiber taper had good uniformity of structure as the outer diameter decreased from 110 to 80 μm. Its optical attenuation was measured 52 dB/km at 1060 nm, and the zero dispersion wavelengths along the slow axis were calculated decreasing from 1000 to 915 nm. Watt-level supercontinuum spanning from 430 to 2050 nm was obtained as the fiber taper pumped by a 1064 nm picosecond laser source. The nonlinear mechanism of spectral broadening is carefully investigated with the support of numerical simulations.
