Paper Abstract

The potential of four-wave mixing conversion in As2S3 step-index and microstructured fibers for light generation in the 3-5 μm wavelength range is assessed using the Fully Vectorial Effective Index Method to obtain the dispersion curves of the microstructured fibers. We demonstrate that it is theoretically possible to obtain a signal wavelength located at 3.05 μm from a pump at 2.31 μm, with sufficiently broad linewidth to perform efficient frequency conversion. Thereby, we highlight the superiority of microstructure over classical step-index structure for efficient mid-IR generation through four-wave mixing process.
