Abstract

We investigate supercontinuum (SC) generation in highly nonlinear tellurite microstructured fibers pumped by a continuous wave (cw)/quasi-cw laser. We investigate two types of tellurite fibers. One type has the constant core diameter, and the other type has a longitudinally varying core diameter. For the fibers with a constant core diameter, when pumped in the anomalous dispersion region, the SC is symmetric in a fiber that has a zero dispersion wavelength close to the pump wavelength. For the fibers with a longitudinally varying diameter, the calculated phase-matching conditions show that they have a broad wavelength range of dispersive waves, and therefore the measured SC spectrum can be broader than one octave. In this work, the fiber lengths are as short as several tens of centimeters, and the pump power is in the watt level.
