7 September 2016 Rigorous study of supercontinuum generation by high-order optical modes
Author Affiliations +
We numerically study the supercontinuum (SC) generation in a six modes photonic crystal fiber (PCF). By solving the multimode generalised Schrdinger equation, we demonstrate the generation of SC by initially exciting the fundamental mode or one of the higher order modes and then observe the energy transfer to the other high order modes. We analyze the energy transfer between degenerate modes during propagation through the few mode PCF. A detailed investigation of the nonlinear effects on the SC process through linear and nonlinear coupling is provided which confirms the energy transfer between optical degenerate modes during propagation inside the few- mode fiber.
