Abstract
Based on the chirp-pulse compensation technique, a 40-GHz supercontinuum (SC) source generated in a highly nonlinear fiber (HNLF) with large normal dispersion is investigated. We show numerically and experimentally that the widest SC spectrum can be obtained by setting a two-stage all-fiber pulse compressor consisted of the HNLF and standard single-mode fiber (SMF) in front of the last-section HNLF for SC generation. The third dispersion of the fibers, especially the SMF used as chirp-compensating fiber, is found to greatly degrade the SC spectrum generated in this scheme.
