Paper Abstract

The onset of supercontinuum generation in a photonics crystal fiber is investigated experimentally and numerically as a function of pump optical power with a femtosecond pulse. The effects of optical wave breaking of higher-order solitons, Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), and coupling between the SRS and parametric four-wave mixing on supercontinuum generation are investigated. Good agreement between experiment and simulation is obtained.
