Abstract

We investigate super-continuum generation by using incoherent noise pulses instead of clean ultra-short pulse trains. In the experiment, we successfully generate flat continuum of 956 nm with a spectral density of over -10 dBm/nm by using an ASE noise source composed of an Erbium-doped fiber amplifier.
