Paper Abstract

We numerically study the broadband mid-infrared supercontinuum generation in a non-uniform SF57 microstructured fiber. The dispersion of the fiber is tailored by linearly varying the air hole diameters along the propagation distance. The fiber has zero dispersion at two wavelengths. This allows a continuous shift of the higher zero dispersion wavelength to a longer wavelength. Results show this scheme can significantly broaden the generated spectrum.
