Analysis of spectral broadening dominated by cascaded stimulated Raman scattering in optical fibers
Keywords:Optical fibers, stimulated Raman scattering, supercontinuum generation
In this work, the experimental study of spectral broadening due to stimulated Raman scattering with respect to variation of input power of pulsed laser, as well as a 4 m length high-numerical aperture fiber with 100 and 500 m of non-zero dispersion-shifted fiber is reported. The results showed extreme broadening of spectrum which is known as supercontinuum generation, originated by self-phase modulation, four- wave mixing and dominated by cascaded stimulated Raman scattering. Supercontinuum spectrum achieved by total width of 850 nm and a remarkable flatness in the range of 1500 to 1600 nm. Furthermore, output spectrum showed a total of five Stokes waves. Numerical results are also presented.
