Student oral presentation for the 2021 virtual CAP Congress on the topic of 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.
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 …
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.
Study of polarization properties during supercontinuum generation using germania-doped photonic crystal fiber.
