Paper Abstract

We report a 29 W CW supercontinuum spanning from 1.07 μm to 1.67 μm with a spectral power density of 50 mW/nm up to 1.4 μm. The continuum is produced in a short length of photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with two zero dispersion wavelengths. Ultimately the second zero limits the long wavelength edge of the continuum. We also find that despite using much shorter lengths of PCF the affects of OH- absorption are still visible in the supercontinuum produced.
