Abstract
We report the experimental results of ultraviolet-extended broadband supercontinuum (SC) generation in a carefully designed uniform seven-core photonic crystal fiber (PCF) pumped by Ti:sapphire femtosecond laser at 800 nm. Three different PCFs of various core diameters are fabricated to achieve group-velocity matching for ultraviolet components. A wide optical spectrum spanning down to 350 nm is obtained, which is the shortest wavelength SC generation in multicore PCF to date. High spectral flatness (10 dB) has been achieved in the entire visible window.
