We propose a continuous wave dual-wavelength-pumped scheme for visible supercontinuum (SC) generation. The scheme is numerically studied in this paper. In the scheme, the dual-wavelength pump source is produced through a four-wave mixing process in a photonic crystal fiber. SC generation is numerically investigated by solving the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The results verify that the visible SC can be generated by the scheme, which implies that the scheme is promising for generating visible SC with high spectral power densities.
