Abstract

A dispersion zero near 1300 nm of a narrow-diameter tapered fiber is used to generate broadband, near-infrared light. When femtosecond pulses at 1260 nm with 750 pJ of energy are launched in proximity to the second zero-dispersion wavelength, a continuum spanning 1000–1700 nm is produced.
