Paper Abstract

We use a figure-eight fibre laser with a photonic crystal fibre NALM (nonlinear amplifying loop mirror) to produce a moderate supercontinuum from 1440 nm - 1680 nm in highly nonlinear dispersion shifted fibre. We also observe a 743 nm band in the fluorescence of the erbium doped amplifier outside the figure-eight fibre laser.
