Paper Abstract

A chalcogenide optical fiber of special design is proposed to convert a short-wavelength IR radiation (around 2 μm) up to second transparency window of atmospheric air (around 4.5 μm) by degenerate four-wave mixing. The fiber supports a small core surrounded by three large air holes. The zero-dispersion wavelength is shifted down to 2 μm in this fiber by properly tailoring geometry of the fiber core. We demonstrate by solving the nonlinear Schrödinger equation that efficient wavelength-conversion can be obtained by pumping the fiber with a Tm:SiO2 pulsed fiber laser.
