Paper Abstract

Supercontinuum generation using picosecond pulses pumped into cobweb photonic crystal fibres is investigated. Dispersion profiles are calculated for several fibre designs. The influence of the fibre structural parameters on the location of the Stokes/anti-Stokes peaks and gain bandwidth is investigated. We find that four-wave mixing is the dominant physical mechanism for the pumping scheme considered here, and that there is a tradeoff between the spectral width and the spectral flatness. The balance of this tradeoff is determined by nanometer-scale design of the fibre structural parameters.
