Abstract

We report what we believe to be the first demonstration of the second and third harmonics in tellurite microstructured fibers pumped by a 1557nm femtosecond fiber laser. The intensities of the second and third harmonics are enhanced by increasing the nonlinear coefficient of the tellurite microstructured fiber. By using tellurite microstructured fiber with a core diameter of 2.7μm, supercontinuum light expanding from 470nmto2400nm could be achieved. The effects of the fiber-core diameter on the flatness of the supercontinuum light are also investigated when pumped at 1557nm.
