Paper Abstract

In this paper, Soliton self-frequency shift (SSFS) in ZrF4-BaF2-LaF3-AlF3-NaF (ZBLAN) is investigated based on Raman gain coefficients and generalized nonlinear SchrÖdinger equation. We have measured the Raman gain coefficient spectrum of a fluoride ZBLAN glass. The Raman response function and Raman fraction of ZBLAN fibers are obtained from the actual Raman gain spectrum. The enhanced SSFS in the ZBLAN fiber under investigation as compared to the silica fiber is mainly due to the combination of nonlinear coefficient and Raman response function enhancement. Therefore, ZBLAN fiber is promising materials for SSFS.
