Broadband Noise on Supercontinuum Generated in Microstructure Fiber



Kristan L. Corwin, Nathan R. Newbury, Sarah L. Gilbert, K Weber, Scott Diddams, Leo W. Hollberg, R Windeler


The broad supercontinuum generated by pumping highly nonlinear microstructure fiber with a femtosecond laser exhibits broadband amplitude noise. We experimentally investigate this amplitude noise as a function of wavelength, input pump power and chirp.
