Abstract

We demonstrated the selection of the chirped supercontinuum using an ultrafast optical Kerr gate (OKG) of lead phthalocyanine (PbPc)-doped hybrid glasses. Using the OKG, narrow bandwidth and symmetrical gated spectra were obtained continuously from the chirped supercontinuum generated in a sapphire plate with a femtosecond laser. Experimental results show that the obtained Kerr-gated spectra using the PbPc-glass have many advantages comparing with that using CS2.
