Abstract
High-power mid-infrared (mid-IR) fiber-based supercontinuum (SC) sources are considered a key enabling technology for numerous applications in such important areas as microscopy, spectroscopy, medicine, and military. Most of the applications require robust, high power, sources emitting radiation in the 2-4 μm spectral band. To meet these requirements, a suitable design of SC laser source has to be applied. High-power SC generation in soft glass fibers is a relatively new research domain and the number of research groups dealing with this topic is still very small. Nevertheless, the results already achieved are very impressive and promising regarding practical applications of SC sources. In this paper I briefly reviewed the developments in scaling up the output average power and spectral coverage in the mid-IR region in fluoride fiber-based SC sources that have been achieved recently by my group.
