Paper Abstract

We present the fabrication of tellurite TeO2-ZnO-Na2O (TZN) microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) with a suspended core and the characterization of their optical properties. The fibers are designed to develop an infrared supercontinuum generation using a sub-nJ femtosecond pulsed laser at 1.56μm. By pumping a 20 cm long fiber we generate a supercontinuum (SC) spanning over 800 nm in the 1-2 μm wavelength range. For a MOF with a core size of 2.2 μm the zero dispersion wavelength (ZDW) is at 1.45 μm. The effective area of TZN MOF is 3.5 μm2 and the nonlinear coefficient is calculated to be 437 W-1km-1.
