Paper Abstract

We experimentally demonstrated the generation of dispersive waves (DWs) at the visible wavelength by coupling femtosecond pulses into the anomalous dispersion region of the second-order mode of a homemade photonic crystal fiber. When center wavelengths of the pump pulses are located at 800 and 850 nm and input average powers Pav are increased from 300, to 400, and to 500 mW, the blue-shifted DWs can be generated during the soliton dynamics and are tunable within the wavelength range of 614 to 561 nm. Moreover, the conversion efficiency ηDW of DWs is enhanced from 5% to 21%, and the corresponding bandwidth BDW is broadened from 17 to 30 nm. It is believed that the DWs can be used as the ultrashort pulse source for visible photonics and spectroscopy.
