Paper Abstract

One of the objectives of NextGenPCF European Union R&D project is to develop compact and low-cost white-light supercontinuum sources, based on the use of microchip lasers and air/silica microstructured optical fibres. In this paper, we present some experimental results obtained with doped or undoped highly nonlinear fibres. We also introduce and discuss some ways of getting blue/UV frequency generation, which is particularly useful for certain specific biomedical applications. Finally, the different methods proposed for supercontinuum generation are compared, in terms of spectral power density and spectrum range.
