Abstract

We report on an intracavity configuration for supercontinuum generation in a Q-switched Yb fiber laser. The supercontinuum laser includes a section of microstructured fiber within the Q-switched laser cavity. With 380 mW of pump power, the supercontinuum laser can emit broadband pulses of 6 μ J energy and 10 ns temporal width, at repetition rates from few hertz up to 2 kHz . The supercontinuum spectrum spans over a wavelength range in excess of 1.4 μ m .
