Abstract

A systematic experimental study on the polarization properties of supercontinuum generation (SCG) in a noncentrosymmetric crystal (KDP) is reported. Our studies show that depolarization of the SCG is dependent on the plane of polarization of incident light as well as on the orientation of the crystal, allowing a better control of the polarization properties.
