Simulation of Linear Depolarization Effects During Supercontinuum Generation in Optical Fiber

We simulate depolarization mechanisms in optical fiber based on linear and nonlinear effects, including a linear polarization mode coupling term to reproduce experimental observations.

Polarization-resolved supercontinuum generated in a germania-doped photonic crystal fiber

We characterize the polarization properties of a supercontinuum (SC) generated in a GeO2-doped photonic crystal fiber (PCF) to reveal the interplay between nonlinear broadening mechanisms of a pulse propagating in two independent fundamental modes …

Polarization resolution of a fiber-based supercontinuum spanning more than 2 octaves

We present a novel broadband spectrometer that resolves an orthogonal set of linear polarization states. Our system reveals the frequency-dependent nature of depolarization mechanisms occurring in highly-nonlinear fibers.
