Highly Coherent Supercontinuum Generation in the Normal Dispersion Liquid-Core Photonic Crystal Fiber

Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 48, 67-76, 2016
Abstract
In this paper, a liquid-core photonic crystal fiber (LCPCF) with small hollow-core filled by chalcogenide material CS2 is designed. The supercontinuum (SC) generation in such a LCPCF with nonlinear coefficient of 3327 W-1•km-1 at 1550 nm and wide normal dispersion regime spanning from 1200 to 2500 nm is numerically studied by solving the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The influences of the pump pulse parameters on the SC spectral width and coherence are demonstrated, and the optimum pump condition for the SC generation is determined. Our study work can provide an alternative way for obtaining highly coherent SC, which is important for the applications in optical coherence tomography, frequency combs, and ultrashort pulse generation.
