Abstract

Supercontinuum generation is performed using femtosecond laser pulses produced by combining two distinct mode-locking mechanisms of nonlinear polarization evolution with saturable absorption on an Er-doped fiber oscillator. The generated supercontinuum yields a high level of spectral visibility of 93%, without the presence of spontaneous emission of post-amplification, being well suited for precision spectroscopy, broadband interferometry, and coherent telecommunications.
