Abstract

We experimentally investigate the nonlinear propagation of subnanosecond pulses in solid-core photonic bandgap fibers. By launching pulses with a few kilowatts peak power, a flat supercontinuum is generated. The long-wavelength edge of the supercontinuum can be controlled thanks to the original linear properties inherent to solid-core photonic bandgap fibers. This allows one to tailor the generated supercontinuum radiation and to keep it over a given spectral range of interest without any significant power loss.
