Abstract


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.
