New strategies for mid-IR fiber-based light generation

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We present two innovative approaches for efficient light generation in the 2–6 µm band based on nonlinear interaction in mid-infrared transmitting optical fibers. In the first approach, stimulated Raman scattering in chalcogenide glass fibers is used to produce a continuous emission in the 3–4 µm band. In the second approach, picosecond pulses at 2.75 µm from an OPG source are amplified in an erbium-doped fluoride glass fiber and launched in a fluoroindate fiber to generate a supercontinuum up to 5.4 µm.
