Abstract

We numerically studied supercontinuum (SC) generation in a few-mode photonic crystal fiber (PCF). We have shown the impact of the intermodal nonlinear effects that could limit the fundamental mode nonlinear propagation due to the coupling induced by high-order optical modes. We have demonstrated an accurate modeling of the SC generation into the multimode PCF by solving the multimode generalized nonlinear Shrödinger equation (MM-GNLSE). Our detailed investigation of the dynamics of the intermodal nonlinear effects on the SC process confirms the energy transfer between optical degenerate modes during propagation inside the few-mode PCF.
