Paper Abstract

We design a seven-core photonic crystal fiber with specifically designed dispersion and group velocity profile which is optimized for high-power visible supercontinuum (SC) generation pumped by ∼1-μm pulsed lasers. The fiber has both a large air-filling fraction and a large effective mode field area. Additionally, the in-phase supermode of this fiber exhibits an even field distribution after mode modification. The simulation results suggest that it has a great potential to generate a high-power SC extending to 400 nm, which is highly desirable in biological applications.
