Abstract

We demonstrate the generation of symmetrical supercontinuum of over 40 nm in the 1.55 µm region (1540 – 1580 nm) by injecting 1562 nm, 2.2 ps, 40 GHz optical pulses into a 200 m-long, dispersion-flattened polarization-maintaining photonic crystal fiber. The chromatic dispersion and dispersion slope of the fiber at 1.55 µm are -0.23 ps/km/nm and 0.01 ps/km/nm2, respectively. This is the first report of 1.55 µm band supercontinuum generation in a dispersion-flattened and polarization-maintaining photonic crystal fiber.
