Abstract

We demonstrate soliton self-frequency shift of more than 12% of the optical frequency in a higher-order mode solid, silica-based fiber below 1300 nm . This new class of fiber shows great promise for supporting Raman-shifted solitons below 1300 nm in intermediate energy regimes of 1 to 10 nJ that cannot be reached by index-guided photonic crystal fibers or air-core photonic bandgap fibers. By changing the input pulse energy of 200 fs pulses from 1.36 to 1.63 nJ we observe Raman-shifted solitons between 1064 and 1200 nm with up to 57% power conversion efficiency and compressed output pulse widths less than 50 fs . Furthermore, due to the dispersion characteristics of the HOM fiber, we observe redshifted ńĆerenkov radiation in the normal dispersion regime for appropriately energetic input pulses.
