Paper Abstract

A highly nonlinear dispersion flattened microstructured fiber is proposed. The new structure adopts two claddings with different pitches, air-holes diameters and air-holes arrayed fashions. The characteristics of such microstructured fiber such as nonlinearity and dispersion properties are investigated. The influence of the cladding structure parameters on the nonlinear coefficient and geometric dispersion is analyzed by full-vector finite element method with perfectly matched layer. Highly nonlinear coefficient and the dispersion properties of fibers are tailored by adjusting the cladding structure parameters. A novel microstructured fiber with highly nonlinear coefficient and dispersion flattened which is suited for supercontinuum generation is designed.
