Supercontinuum Generation over 2 µm
AbstractEffective supercontinuum generation in fiber mediain spectral range over 2 μm was experimentallydemonstrated. Supercontinuum generation wasobserved in passive optical fibers. Maximumspectral broadening was obtained in germaniumdopedfibers with longest wavelength near 2.7 μm.To provide high spectral density we used opticalfiber amplifiers. Thus supercontinuum generationwas obtained in holmium optical fiber amplifiersmedium with spectral density 10 W/nm, in therange from 2 to 2.5 μm. In thulium fiber amplifiersobserved amplification not only in conventionalrange near 1.8 μm, but in spectral range from 2.3 to2.5 μm, that corresponds to 3H4→ 3H5 opticaltransition possibility in thulium-doped opticalfibers.
