Abstract

Ge O 2 -doped-core photonic crystal fibers show greatly enhanced Kerr and Raman responses with respect to pure silica without any significant modification of the group-velocity dispersion curve. We show that such fibers allow a significant improvement of cw-pumped supercontinuum generation. We report for the first time to our knowledge the generation of a white-light cw-pumped supercontinuum spanning from 470 nm to more than 1750 nm .
