Abstract

We report visible supercontinuum generation initiated by the second harmonic generation obtained in a germanium-doped microstructured optical fiber after optical poling processing. The visible spectral broadening is due to a cross-phase modulation effect between the generated IR solitons and the second harmonic (532nm) of the 1064 nm pump wave. The 400650 nm white-light emission is obtained on the fundamental propagation mode of the fiber.
