Abstract

As a result of the novel dispersion characteristics of photonic crystal fibers (PCFs), new features in nonlinear optical effects arise that can not be observed in standard optical fibers. One such phenomenon is the generation of an extremely broadband supercontinuum (SC). This paper outlines the experimental evidence that low-intensity SC generation in PCFs is caused by a previously unknown mechanism for ultra-wide spectral broadening.
