Abstract

We report what we believe to be the first demonstration of supercontinuum generation spanning over three octaves from UV (at least 350nm) to 3.85μm in a 2.5-cm-long fluoride fiber pumped by a 1450nmfemtosecond laser. The spectral broadening in the fluoride fiber is caused primarily by self-phase modulation. Its performance is also compared with that of a 2.5-cm-long silica fiber pumped by the same laser.
