Abstract

We report the experimental demonstration of a visible supercontinuum in the cw pumping regime. A 20W ytterbium fiber laser at 1.06μm is used to pump a photonic crystal fiber whose zero-dispersion wavelength decreases along the fiber length. Visible wavelengths are generated in the fundamental mode via trapping of dispersive waves by redshifted solitons.
