Abstract
In this report, we inform in detail on fabrication of a special (3 rings of air-holes) index-giuding air-silica microstructured optical fiber (IG MOF) with different air-hole diameters in the cladding (irregular cladding) and its application for a broadband supercontinuum (SC) generation by femtosecond laser pulses. For comparison, supercontinuum generation in a special nonlinear air-silica IG MOF with regular cladding is also investigated. Dispersion properties of the investigated fibers were numerically predicted and experimentally verified. Broadband SC generation from visual wavelengths up to 1600 nm in such fibers, both with the length of 1 m, was observed.
