Near-infrared continuum generation of femtosecond and picosecond pulses in doped optical fibers Academic Article uri icon


  • Continuum generation in GeO2-doped silica fibers induced by femtosecond and picosecond pulses was reported. A high-power spectral continuum in the range from 800 nm to 1500 nm was achieved. Results showed that the leading mechanism for spectral broadening of picosecond pulses was cascaded stimulated Raman scattering, followed by self-phase modulation.
