Abstract
Graded-index multimode fibers attracted interest in nonlinear regime for their unique nonlinear dynamics characteristics. We report the supercontinuum generation pumped by a superluminescent pulse amplification in graded-index multimode fiber. Efficient supercontinuum was generated and the beam profile cleanup was observed. The speckle characteristics of this supercontinuum is measured and compared to another supercontinuum induced by a homemade mode-locked fiber laser. It is found that the supercontinuum generated by superluminescent pulse amplification attains a smoother speckle structure and lower optical coherence. Our results indicate that the superluminescent pulse amplification could be a more effective means to produce low coherent supercontinuum sources than traditional lasers.
