Flatly Broadened and Highly Coherent Supercontinuum Generation by Induced Modulation Instability in ANDi-PCF
In this paper, a flatly broadened and highly coherent supercontinuum generation by induced modulation instability in ANDi-PCF is proposed. The numerical results show that the bandwidth of supercontinuun can be increased by increasing the modulation depth and the coherence property of supercontinuum can be improved with the optimal modulation frequency. A highly coherent supercontinuum with the 10 dB bandwidth of 1305 nm and the flatness of less than 10 dB can be obtained when seeding at the modulation depth of 0.3 and modulation frequency of 24 THz.
