Abstract
The optimized design of microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) for supercontinuum generation is investigated. The dependence of the group velocity dispersion and effective mode area on wavelength is analyzed. We consider first the case of a conventional MOF with a hexagonal pattern of air holes. In addition, we propose a new design, corresponding to a layered spiral microstructured optical fiber (LS-MOF). By changing appropriately its three parameters, it is possible to shift the zero dispersion wavelength to visible and near-infrared regions, as well as to achieve a very high nonlinearity near this wavelength. Supercontinuum generation is simulated in a LS-MOF with optimized design .
