The delay and phase dependent behavior of a system for supercontinuum generation by using a microstructured fiber within a synchronously pumped ring resonator is presented numerically. The feedback introduced by the resonator led to an interaction of the supercontinuum with the following femtosecond laser pulses and thus to the formation of a nonlinear oscillator. Via the feedback phase different regimes of nonlinear dynamics, such as steady state, period multiplication, limit cycle and chaos can be adjusted systematically. The spectrum within one regime of nonlinear dynamics can additionally be modified independently from the regime of nonlinear dynamics.
