Paper Abstract

The generation of a continuous-wave pumped supercontinuum source at 1.3 &mgr;m is described. The device makes use of a tunable Yb-doped fiber laser, a cascade of fiber Bragg-grating mirrors and a concatenation of standard silica fibers with stepwise decreasing dispersion. The generated supercontinuum spans from 1280 to 1513 nm, shows and average output power of 1.34 W and exhibits >0 dBm/nm spectral power density over 200 nm.
