Paper Abstract

We demonstrate the generation of a low repetition rate picosecond, polarized, visible supercontinuum in a highly birefringent fibre. The polarization dependence of the supercontinuum spectrum is investigated, and the mechanisms responsible for the generation of visible light in these pumping conditions are described.
