Raman-free nonlinear optical effects in high pressure gas-filled hollow core PCF

Azhar, M; Wong, G K L; Chang, W; Joly, N Y; Russell, P St J

Description

The effective Kerr nonlinearity of hollow-core kagomé-style photonic crystal fiber (PCF) filled with argon gas increases to ~15% of that of bulk silica glass when the pressure is increased from 1 to 150 bar, while the zero dispersion wavelength shifts from 300 to 900 nm. The group velocity dispersion of the system is uniquely pressure-tunable over a wide range while avoiding Raman scattering-absent in noble gases-and having an extremely high optical damage threshold. As a result, detailed and...[Show more]
