Fully coherent spectral broadening of femtosecond pulses from an Er:fiber system
Department of Physics and Center for Applied Photonics, University of Konstanz, D-78457 Konstanz, Germany
Coherence properties of the ultrabroadband output from a highly nonlinear germanosilicate fiber pumped by a femtosecond Er:fiber source are investigated. Conditions necessary to achieve full spectral coherence are demonstrated experimentally and analyzed theoretically.
