Abstract

Conventional highly-nonlinear fiber (HNLF) designs are optimized for high field-confinement but are also inherently susceptible to dispersion fluctuations. The design compromise prevents fiber-optical parametric mixers from possessing high power efficiency and extended operating bandwidth simultaneously. Using a new fiber waveguide design, we have fabricated and tested a new class of HNLF that possesses a significantly lower level of dispersion fluctuations while maintaining a high level of field-confinement comparable to that in conventional HNLFs. The fiber was used to demonstrate an all-fiber parametric oscillator operating in short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) band with a watt-level pump, for the first time.
