Abstract

We report what we believe to be the first demonstration of supercontinuum generation spanning over three octaves from UV (at least 350 nm ) to 3.85 μ m in a 2.5 - cm -long fluoride fiber pumped by a 1450 nm femtosecond laser. The spectral broadening in the fluoride fiber is caused primarily by self-phase modulation. Its performance is also compared with that of a 2.5 - cm -long silica fiber pumped by the same laser.
