Nonlinear photonic crystal fibers
Our nonlinear photonic crystal fibers are optimized for supercontinuum generation and nonlinear wavelength conversion. You get a unique combination of a tailored dispersion profile and a very high nonlinear coefficient.
We offer single-mode supercontinuum fibers optimized for the several common pumping laser wavelengths. We also offer some of our PCF fibers as modules with hermetically sealed ends – See our femtoWHITE product range.
Nonlinear supercontinuum fibers
We offer single-mode supercontinuum fibers optimized for all important pumping laser wavelengths. The majority of our nonlinear fibers are available with hermetically sealed ends and FC/PC connectors.
These single-mode non-linear photonic crystal fibers combine a very small effective mode field area and low/zero-dispersion to allow efficient supercontinuum generation with 800 nm and 1064 nm pump sources.

If you want more details about how to handle optical fibers: Strip, cleave, couple them, etc., we have some application notes for you.
Optical fibers require proper handling to ensure a long lifetime and prevent fiber breaking. Read this guideline to learn how to handle optical fiber to keep both fiber and operator safe.
Read this application note if you would like to learn how to handle our optical fibers, e.g., including how to strip the protective coating, how to cleave the fibers, and how to couple light to and from the fibers.

This rather specific application note tells you how to integrate our SC-5.0-1040 with a passively Q-switched Nd3+ – microchip laser to form a compact and low-cost, ultra-bright supercontinuum source that covers 550-1600 nm with a spectral “flatness” of better than 5 dB.
