Abstract

A microstructure-fiber (MF) based supercontinuum source and a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator in the 1550 nm regime were demonstrated. By using a 12.5 m long MF, a 10-GHz repetition rate picosecond pulse source was obtained. This source was capable of 120 nm wavelength tunability due to the wide-gain bandwidth of the combined processes of stimulated Raman scattering and parametric four wave mixing.
