Abstract

We predict and numerically study supercontinuum generation extending over almost two octaves in planar rib waveguides, with anomalous dispersion at the input wavelength provided by the waveguide contribution. Such planar nonlinear waveguides generating broadband coherent radiation can be intergrated with other components to constitute a building block in intergrated optical circuits.
