Paper Abstract

We present an approach for fiber delivery of femtosecond pulses relying on pulse breakup and soliton self-frequency shift in a custom-made solid-core photonic bandgap fiber. In this scheme, the fiber properties themselves ensure that a powerful Fourier-transform-limited pulse is emitted at the fiber output, hence doing away with the need for complex precompensation and enabling tunability of the excitation. We report high-energy soliton excitation for two-photon fluorescence microspectroscopy over a 100-nm range and multimodal nonlinear imaging on biological samples.
