Abstract

We present an experimental and numerical study of supercontinuum generation extended in the visible part of the spectrum by using a selective optical coupling of the pump wave in the largely anomalous dispersion regime. The broadband frequency generation is induced by an initial four-wave mixing process that converts the pump wave at 1064 nm into 831 nm anti-Stokes and 1478 nm Stokes wavelengths. Phase matching is ensured on such a large frequency shift thanks to a microstructured multimodal fiber with a specific design. Continuum generation is therefore enhanced around the two generated sidebands.
