Abstract

We report linear dispersion compensation, soliton pulse formation, soliton compression, and ultra-broad supercontinuum generation in a holey fiber with anomalous dispersion at wavelengths above 800nm. The holey fiber was seeded with ultrashort pulses from a diode pumped, Ytterbium (Yb)-doped fiber source operating at 1.06 μm. The results highlight the compatibility of the rapidly developing holey fiber technology with short pulse Yb-doped fiber lasers for wide application.

Results obtained using amplified pulses. a)SEM of the holey fiber used for amplified pulse experiments. b) Autocorrelation of 70 pJ pulses; at the input (positively chirped, FWHM 6ps), and after transmission through 60m of fiber (FWHM ~400fs). c) Spectra of input pulses (FWHM 6ps, 100pJ) and wavelength shifted (SSFS) pulses after transmission through 60m of fiber. d) Broadband continuum obtained by launching 20kW peak power pulses (FWHM~350fs, 7.5nJ) into 7m fiber length. The chirp of the input pulses was removed using a diffraction grating compressor.
