Abstract

A novel high-power broadband source based on the combined action of stimulated Raman scattering and parametric four-wave mixing in a highly nonlinear dispersion-shifted fiber ring cavity is investigated experimentally. An output spectrum of 1510–1580 nm with a stable power of 91 mW is demonstrated with a dual-wavelength pumping scheme.
