Paper Abstract

This paper presents an investigation of broadband supercontinuum (SC) generation in photonic crystal fibers using cosh-Gaussian optical pulses. It is found that the SC spectra of these cosh-Gaussian pulses are composed of several internal oscillations. The number of the oscillations increases with an increase in the value of the cosh parameter Ω0. The internal structure of the SC spectra shows an asymmetric behavior, possessing fewer oscillations as we move from the lower to higher wavelength region. Our results indicate that the SC generation dynamics is dominated by self-phase modulation.
