Abstract

We present an cross-correlation frequency-resolved optical gating (XFROG) measurement of a megahertz IR supercontinuum generated in a step-index ZBLAN fiber. The resulting spectrogram gives the dispersion characteristics of the fiber and reveals that it has three zero-dispersion wavelengths. A comparison of the measured spectrogram with numerical simulations shows that this dispersion profile allows a notable dispersive-wave generation toward long wavelengths. Furthermore, the sum-frequency generation process in the XFROG measurement gives the possibility of measuring the IR light with fast Si-based detectors, such as CCD arrays.
