Paper Abstract

Supercontinuum (SC) generation from a highly nonlinear tellurite microstructured fiber with multi-ring holes was demonstrated by pumping with a 2 μm high power mode-locked fiber laser. The chromatic dispersion of the fiber was measured with a homemade white-light spectral interferometer on a wide wavelength range and matched very well with the theoretical calculation. The zero dispersion wavelength (ZDW) of the fiber was measured to be 1358 nm and calculated to be 1390 nm. Although the pumped wavelength was far away from ZDW, with flat dispersion profile of the fiber on the anomalous dispersion, the SC could be expanded from 650 nm to 2850 nm with launched pulse energy of several hundred picojoules. Simulations of SC generation were performed and showed fair agreement with the experimental results.
