We investigate a change of dispersion characteristic in a series of nonlinear photonic crystal fibers caused by slight variation of structural parameters, i.e. an air-hole diameter and a lattice constant. Each fiber has been fabricated to have zero dispersion wavelength close to 1064 nm. The generation of supercontinuum is also demonstrated with the use of fabricated fibers pumped at the wavelength of 1064 nm. We provide the comparison of SC evolution and different nonlinear effects in fabricated fibers. Due to the extensive content of experimental research performed for different photonic crystal fibers, our paper indicates how to design a fiber to be tolerant to the fabrication inaccuracies and to obtain the desired supercontinuum characteristics.
