Low-energy single-optical-cycle soliton self-compression in air-silica nanowires

Paper Abstract

We investigated and optimized the process of soliton self-compression in few millimeters-long air-silica nanowires. A 100 fs prechirped input pulse was compressed to a 1.4 fs pulse by pumping at very low energy of 2.5 nJ an air-silica nanowire. More than one octave spanning coherent broadband supercontinuum extending from 260 to 1800 nm was generated.
