Abstract

An ultra-flat, high-power supercontinuum generated from a picosecond telecommunication fiber laser was presented. The pulse from a carbon nanotube mode-locked oscillator was amplified using an Er–Yb codoped fiber amplifier. The output of the system achieved an average power of 2.7 W, with the center wavelength at 1564 nm and a FWHM of 6 nm in the spectral domain. By passing this amplified high-power pulse through a 4.6 m highly nonlinear photonic crystal fiber, an ultra-flat supercontinuum spanning 1600–2180 nm is generated. And the average power of the supercontinuum achieves 1 W.
