Key Points

  • Novel pulse compression and supercontinuum generation scheme based on optical fiber with transverse random and longitudinal uniform refractive index profiles
  • In the random fiber structure, the dispersion properties of the fiber can be chosen and widely varied by exciting an Anderson-mode of a certain size
  • Applications include white light generation for spectroscopy and interferometry and peak power enhancement of coherent laser pulses due to linear and nonlinear pulse compression

Abstract

The University of Central Florida invention demonstrates pulse compression and supercontinuum generation in optical fibers with transverse random and longitudinal uniform refractive index distributions.
