Paper Abstract

An all-fiber supercontinuum light source based on a polarization-maintaining, self-starting femtosecond oscillator with repetition rate in the MHz range is presented. The supercontinuum stretches from 950 – 2100 nm and exhibits a high level of stability – both in terms of amplitude and repetition rate. The supercontinuum source displays an rms intensity noise of 0.05 % when integrated from 10 Hz to 1 MHz. The light source is contained in box with dimensions 25×25×5 cm3 with a single mode output fiber. This together with the high level of stability makes this light source well suited for applications in, e.g., spectroscopy and OCT.
