Abstract
Supercontinuum(SC) source has found numerous applications, such as DWDM, frequency metrology, optical coherence tomography, and optical measurement. We demonstrate an all-fiber supercontimuun source generated in highly nonlinear fiber (HNLF). The HNLF is pumped by our mode-locked fiber laser with pulse width and peak power, 21.1ps and kW, respectively. An ultra-broadband supercontinuum extends from 1000 nm to 1750 nm is obtained, and the spectrum is flat with the amplitude variation less than 4dB except around the fiber zero dispersion wavelength. The spectrum of our supercontinuum source can extend beyond 1750 nm, but due to the limitation of the measured range of optical spectrum analyzer (AQ6317B), the spectrum of the supercontinuum source beyond 1750 nm is not yet obtained in our lab now. The spectral broadening mechanism of smoothed supercontinnum is considered by the higher-order soliton fission and their blue-shifted dispersive wave.
