Paper Abstract

We present an overview of the fabrication process and characterization of germanate, germanate-tellurite and tellurite microstructured fibers or step-index fibers with different index contrasts. For microstructured fibers, we exploit the generated SC for methane spectroscopy measurements in the mid-infrared by means of the supercontinuum absorption spectroscopy technique. We demonstrate also an ageing process of microstructured fibers in ambient atmosphere. For stepindex fibers, several compatible core/cladding glasses were explored for fiber manufacturing with a dehydration process, allowing the drawing of low-OH tellurite fibers. We report both numerical and experimental demonstrations supercontinuum (SC) generation in these fibers. Finally we report our latest results in the generation of SC until 5.3 μm in a step-index tellurite fiber.
