Abstract

We present experimental measurements illustrating the power-dependent coherence evolution for supercontinuum generated in highly nonlinear SF6 photonic crystal fibers. The measurements were performed for fiber lengths close to and much longer than the soliton fission length. Simulations of the spectral evolution were also carried out to accompany the experimental observation. Many parameters were estimated by matching the simulated and the measured evolution. Both the measured and the simulated coherence evolution confirm the association between coherence degradation and soliton fission.
