Paper Abstract

Unique measurements setup has been designed to examine the fiber-length-dependent energy conversion in multi-core-type photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) at the illumination of femto-second Ti-Sapphire laser pulses. Gradual spectral change of some peaks generating through 5 m-long PCF has been observed by using this system. Those peaks and their shifts have been identified as solitons and soliton self-frequency shift. On the other hand, the origin of peaks in shorter-wavelength regime is neither dispersive waves which are emitted and trapped by solitons nor idler waves generated by four-wave mixing or sum-frequency shift. Wavelength dispersion profiles of 5m-long PCF have been determined by measuring chromatic dispersion using a spectroscopic streak camera and the supercontinuum light, which is generated from a 20-mm-long PCF under illumination of a femto-second Ti-sapphire laser pulse.
