Abstract
In this work, we present results of broadband emissions ranging from 800 to 1500 nm generated by using Photonic Crystal Fibres (PCFs) made from borosilicate glasses. The borosilicate PCFs, fabricated by the Stack-and-Draw technique, consist of five hollow ring periods around the solid core. The solid core is based on the lead-doped borosilicate glass. The PCFs with their external diameters ranging from about 3.8 to 6 microns were excited with a commercial pulsed diode laser (wavelength at 1065 nm, Power <100mW). The PCF length used to generate broadband emissions was less than a meter. The Optical Attenuation of these PCFs was measured via the Cut-Back method and their Dispersion Spectra were calculated by using the Finite Element Method (FEM) and the scanning electronic microscope images. Finally, we believe that short borosilicate PCFs with lead-doped cores (related to high non-linear properties) may be used in broadband emissions, supercontinuum generations or other non-linear applications.
