Paper Abstract

Supercontinuum (SC) source generated by amplified and dechirped all-normal-dispersion (ANDi) mode-locked Ybdoped fiber laser has many advantages, such as compact structure and low cost. The influences of the seed source, i.e. ANDi laser, on the SC generation are experimentally investigated. The effects of output port and wavelength of ANDi laser on the evolution and bandwidth of SC are studied and discussed. The experiment results show that, the SC resulting from the pulse at conventional nonlinear polarization rotation (NPR) port is much narrower than that from the pulse after NPR port. We also investigate how the SC changes when tuning the output wavelength of an oscillator. The influences on SC of the polarization and power of the incident pump, which generates the SC by propagating through the nonlinear fiber, are also observed.
