Abstract

Supercontinuum generation in chalcogenide fibers is a promising technology for broadband spatially coherent sources in the mid-infrared, but it suffers from discouraging commercial prospects, mainly due to a lack of suitable pump lasers. Here, a promising approach is experimentally demonstrated using an amplified 1.55 μm diode laser to generate a pump continuum up to 4.4 μm in cascaded silica and fluoride fibers. We present experimental evidence and numerical simulations confirming that the spectral-temporal composition of the pump continuum is critical for continued broadening in a chalcogenide fiber. The fundamental physical question is concerned with the long-wavelength components of the pump spectrum, which may consist of either solitons or dispersive waves. In demonstrating this we present a commercially viable fiber-cascading configuration to generate a mid-infrared supercontinuum up to 7 μm in commercial chalcogenide fibers.

Experimental setup for cascaded SCG. A 1.55 μm laser diode delivering 3 ns pulses at 40 kHz repetition rate was coupled into a few meters of standard silica single-mode fiber (SMF) to generate a continuum from 1.5 to 2.2 μm (blue curve). This SC was coupled to around 3 m Tm-doped fiber pumped by a 0.79 μm laser to amplify and extend the continuum from 1.8 to 2.8 μm (purple curve). Aspheric lenses L1-L5 was used to couple the spectrum in and out of the ZBLAN/chalcogenide fibers. The long-wavelength part of the full ZBLAN spectrum (red curve) was filtered out with a 3.5 μm long pass filter (LP35) and coupled into the chalcogenide fiber. The output was collimated and analysed with an FTIR and PbSe camera. A 4.5 μm long pass filter (LP45) was inserted when measuring the power and spectrum generated at longer wavelengths.

(a) Illustration of DW generation across the second ZDW. The experimental output spectrum of ZBLAN A is plotted in linear scale on the wavelength/intensity plane displaying the signature of initial DW generation across the ZDW (purple curve) and the subsequent continuum formation at higher power (red curve). (b) In ZBLAN B the long-wavelength edge is continuously shifted through SSFS up until the multiphonon absorption edge due to a longer ZDW.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

(a) Formation of a distinct DW peak at around 4.1 μm in ZBLAN A with increased power, eventually forming a continuum. (b) Red-shifting of the spectrum above 3.5 μm in ZBLAN B with increased pump power, displaying a continuous shift due to SSFS. The spectral dip around 4.25 μm in both cases is due to CO2 absorption in the air.

Simulation of SCG in silica and ZBLAN fibres. (a) Spectrum at the output of the silica and ZBLAN fibres. The spectral-temporal composition is displayed in corresponding spectrograms for (b) standard silica fibre, (c) Tm-doped silica fibre, (d) ZBLAN A, and (e) ZBLAN B, respectively. The spectrograms are normalised to the maximum value and scaled from 0 dB to −80 dB
