Abstract

Based on the generalized stochastic nonlinear Schrödinger equation, the effect of intrapulse Raman scattering (IRS) on broadband amplitude noise of supercontinuum (SC) generated in the normal dispersion regime is investigated numerically. The results show that, in the normal dispersion regime, where the IRS contributes less to the bandwidth of the SC spectrum, the broadband amplitude noise of SC is amplified significantly in the process of SC generation because of the existence of IRS effect. Using fiber with an optimal negative dispersion slope, the IRS effect can be suppressed, and thus the SC amplitude noise is reduced without spectral bandwidth loss.
