Abstract

In this work, the influence of applying acoustic frequencies to photonic crystal fibers (PCF) on the supercontinuum (SC) generation is presented. We will show numerically the strong influence of coupling modes in PCF in the latest stage of SC and simulations of different scenarios of phase math condition between the modes.
