Paper Abstract

We take advantage of the Raman soliton self-frequency shift experienced during the propagation in an anomalous dispersive photonic crystal fiber in order to continuously tune the central frequency of ultrashort pulses. We discuss the fiber properties to be favored to obtain high power spectral densities and we carry out an extensive experimental study of the properties of the frequency shifted pulses in terms of spectral, autocorrelation, and RF spectrum measurements.
