Abstract
We demonstrate all-normal dispersion supercontinuum generation in the 1080 nm-1600 nm range by propagating subnanosecond pulses in a high numerical aperture standard optical fiber. The extreme saturation of the Raman gain provides a flat spectrum in the considered range, making this broadband source particularly suitable for coherent Raman spectroscopy. This unusual regime of supercontinuum generation (Raman gain saturation regime) is investigated through an experimental spectrotemporal study. The possibility of operating spectrometer-free time-coded coherent Raman spectroscopy is introduced.
