(EN) SYSTEMS, METHODS, AND STRUCTURES FOR IMPROVED SUPERCONTINUUM GENERATION
(FR) SYSTÈMES, PROCÉDÉS ET STRUCTURES POUR GÉNÉRATION DE SUPER-CONTINUUM AMÉLIORÉE
Abstract
(EN)
Aspects of the present disclosure describe improved supercontinuum generation based upon alternating optical dispersion along a waveguide length that advantageously generates much more spectral bandwidth than possible with conventional, prior art techniques without losing coherence as well as supporting a larger range of pulse energies (i.e., for lower than conventionally allowed pulse energies or high pulse energies).
(FR)
Selon certains aspects, la présente invention concerne une génération de super-continuum améliorée basée sur une dispersion optique alternée le long d'une longueur de guide d'onde qui génère avantageusement une bande passante spectrale plus importante par rapport aux techniques classiques de l'état de la technique, sans perte de cohérence tout en supportant une plus grande plage d'énergies d'impulsion (c'est-à-dire, des énergies d'impulsion plus basses que des énergies d'impulsion classiquement admises ou des énergies d'impulsion élevées).
