Abstract
An ultra-flat and ultra-broadband supercontinuum (SC) is demonstrated in a 4-m photonic crystal fiber (PCF) pumped by an Yb-doped all-fiber noise-like pulses (NLP) laser. The Yb-doped fiber laser is seeded by a SESAM mode-locked fiber laser, and amplified by cascaded fiber amplifiers, with its center wavelength, repetition frequency and the average noise-like bunch duration of 1064.52 nm, 50.18 MHz, 9.14 ps, respectively. Pumped by this NLP laser, the SC source has a 3 dB bandwidth and a 7 dB bandwidth (ignore the pump residue) of 1440 nm and 1790 nm at the maximum average output power of 6.94 W. To the best of our knowledge, this flatness is significantly prominent for the performance of PCF-based SC sources.
