Abstract

A composite photonic crystal fiber structure has been designed with tellurite as the cladding and chalcogenide as a core material. To increase nonlinearity, rods of the chalcogenide glass material have been inserted around the core region. The reported structure offers very high nonlinearity of 1042  W1Km1 at 2800 nm pump wavelength with low and flattened dispersion of approximately 11  ps·nm1Km1. An effective mode area of 6.46  μm2 of the propagating mode has been achieved as at pump wavelength. Such a highly nonlinear composite photonic crystal fiber structure is a potential candidate for nonlinear applications, such as slow-light and supercontinuum generation. Pumping at 2800 nm results in a supercontinuum spectrum spanning 0.5–4.7 μm using 8 mm long photonic crystal fiber pumped with femtosecond laser pulses with peak power of 3 kW.
