Abstract

Single-spatial-mode Raman generation in an ethanol-filled photonic bandgap fiber is demonstrated. Due to the limited bandwidth of the fiber, the generation is limited to the first Stokes order only, allowing high generated power without any visible decrease of the conversion efficiency. The realization of these two key properties opens the way to the realization of optimized compact nonlinear wavelength converters that will accommodate a large variety of usable liquids.

Near field of the fiber output obtained with a white-light source using (a) a green filter and (b) a red filter. Also shown are the near field of (c) the pump beam and (d) the first Stokes order beam. The petal-shaped structures around the Gaussian core are due to the periodic structure of the cladding.

Intensity profile of the Stokes beam far field (shown in the inset). The dotted curve shows a Gaussian adjustment of the profile.

Plot of the peak intensity transmitted by the fiber at the pump (circles) and the first Stokes order (triangles) wavelengths as a function of the incident peak power.

Spectra transmitted through the ethanol-filled photonic bandgap fiber at the highest pump power. The inset shows the Lorentzian shape with a width of 0.21 nm FWHM (dashed curve fit) of the first Stokes order.
