Abstract

A solid-core photonic-crystal fiber (PCF) with an effective mode area of 20μm2 is used to demonstrate the generation of sub-100-kW, 3070fs wavelength-tunable solitons within a wavelength range of 13001800nm at a repetition rate of 18MHz. An energy of 2.9nJ per pulse is achieved for a 35fs soliton PCF output centered at 1770nm. Our numerical analysis supports experimental findings and suggests that frequency-shifted solitons in solid-core PCFs can be scaled up to a submegawatt level of peak powers.
