Paper Abstract

We report up to 7.2 W, 800 nm wide supercontinuum generation in a photonic crystal fiber. The pump laser is an Yb-doped fiber oscillator/amplifier generating up to 120 W output at 5~20 MHz repetition rate, with pulse duration of 5~100 ns. The experiment has demonstrated ~60% conversion efficiency for supercontinuum generation using nanosecond lasers. The maximum power is limited by the thermal lensing from the optical components.
