Tunable optical source based on divided pulse soliton self-frequency shift (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

We presented a broadly tunable, power scalable, multi-line, ultrafast source. The source is based on combining principles of pulse division with the phenomenon of the soliton self-frequency shift. By using this system, interferometric pulse recombination is demonstrated showing that the source can decouple the generally limiting relationship between output power and center wavelength in soliton self-frequency shift based optical sources. Broadly tunable multi-color soliton self-frequency shifted pulses are experimentally demonstrated. Simultaneous dual-polarization second harmonic generation was performed with the source, demonstrating one novel imaging methodology that the source can enable.
