Abstract
Recently we have fabricated at Institute of Electronic Materials Technology (ITME) a microstrucuted fiber made of silicate glass NC21A synthesized in-house at ITME. Fabricated fiber is build of three rings of holes around slightly elliptical core (2.6 μm x 3.4 μm). Dispersion properties of the fiber are calculated based on real structure with biorthonormal basis method. Fabricated fiber has a birefringence at the level of 10-3 at 1.5 μm. A zero dispersion is achieved for the wavelengths 860 nm and 870 nm, respectively. In this fiber, pumped with 100 fs pulses with energy of nJ level, ultra broadband supercontinuum generation in the range 400 - 1600 nm has been achieved.
