Paper Abstract

In this paper we present possibilities of tuning spectrum of supercontinuum with the use of temperature change. Our study is based on the information about the role of dispersion characteristics in the process of nonlinear effects generation in nanosecond pulse regime. We obtain tunable spectrum effects in microstructured fiber and we show how to optimize its properties. Our experimental results showing nonlinear effects generation in fiber pumped in normal and anomalous dispersion regime enables to determine how the nonlinear effects depend on temperature changes. We show that even small changes of dispersion characteristic of microstructured fibers enable to obtain significant modification of generated spectra when four wave mixing is dominant effect. Controllable generation of tunable supercontinuum can be used in numbers of potential applications such as diagnostics and measurement systems.
