Abstract

Simulations are presented of a very broad and flat supercontinuum (SC) in both the normal and anomalous group velocity dispersion regimes of the same equiangular spiral photonic crystal fiber at low pumping powers. For a pump wavelength at 1557 nm and average pump power of 11.2 mW, we obtained a bandwidth >3 μm (970 nm–4100 nm) at 40 dB below the peak spectral power with fiber dispersion 2.1 ps/km nm at 1557 nm. In the same fiber, at pump wavelength 1930 nm and average pump power of 12 mW the SC bandwidth was more than two octaves (1300 nm–3700 nm) and dispersion was 1.3 ps/km nm at 1930 nm. This demonstrates the potential use of the fiber for multi-wavelength pumping with commercially available sources at fairly low power.
