Paper Abstract

Supercontinuum generation is often achieved using pulses from a femtosecond laser. Recent advances in highpower continuous-wave (CW) fiber lasers have made it possible to use these compact and rugged sources for supercontinuum generation. We briefly review the physical mechanisms behind supercontinuum generation and also treat some of the intricacies of numerically modelling a CW pump. This allows an investigation of, e.g., how the pump spectral linewidth affects the supercontinuum spectrum.
