Microstructured fibers with small core are successfully used as a medium for supercontinuum generation. Since light can be confined in a small core a high density of energy in the fiber is obtained and stimulate nonlinear effects. Use of lead multicomponent glass allows increasing nonlinear refractive index in the fiber and shape dispersion properties of the fiber. In this case effective broadening of the spectrum can be obtained with less then 1 m of the fiber. In this paper we present properties of photonic crystal fibers optimized for supercontinuum generation.
