Enhanced spectral broadening of short laser pulses in high-numerical-aperture holey fibers

The influence of the structure of holey-fiber cladding on the spectral broadening of femtosecond laser pulses is experimentally studied. These experiments demonstrate that the spectral broadening of 70-fs pulses of 800-nm Ti:sapphire laser radiation transmitted through 2- and 3-μm-pitch holey fibers can be enhanced by a factor of about 1.5 by increasing the air-filling fraction of the fiber cladding from 16 up to 65%.
