Abstract

By coupling femtosecond laser pulses at a wavelength of 0.8 μ m in high-delta microstructure fiber, efficient blueshifted radiation with a central wavelength near 0.4 μ m was observed. The blue light can take 15% of output power. The mechanism for its generation is analyzed to be a degenerate parametric process 2 ω p = ω s + ω i , where the frequency of the signal light ω s is nearly twice the pump frequency ω p , and the frequency of the idler light ω i can lie in the terahertz region.
