Paper Abstract

The obtained result of broadening spectral bandwidth known as "supercontinuum generation" are described in this paper. This effect is usually obtained by transmission a very short laser impulse through a strongly nonlinear element like optical fiber (especially photonic crystal fiber). Supercontinuum generation can be also obtained by propagation short impulse form (nanosecond pulses from Nd:YAG laser at 532nm wavelength with average power 300mW) through tapered conventional optical fiber (COF) or tapered endlessly single mode photonic crystal fiber (PCF). In these paper we are showing our first result of obtaining this effect.
