Abstract

Submillimeter-scale dispersion micromanagement (DMM) is used to generate coherent and stable femtosecond visible pulses in holey fibers as short as 10mm. The longitudinal variation of the phase-matching conditions for Čerenkov radiation and four-wave mixing explains the results well. We have converted up to 20% of the total input energy to a low-noise solitary wave with a bandwidth up to 50nm in the range 385625nm by using holey fibers with various DMM designs.
