Abstract

Experimental and theoretical studies of supercontinuum generation in the telecom spectral window are reported for fibers with shifted decreasing anomalous dispersion. Numerical analysis highlights the high average power of the emitted dispersive waves and the good spectral flatness achieved within the control spectral band for the supercontinuum generated in optical fiber tapers. Reduction of the third-order dispersion in optical fiber tapers is shown to cause spectral broadening, which is extended by hundreds of nanometers in comparison with the supercontinuum generated in uniform fibers, even when subpicosecond pulses of moderate powers are used.
