Experimental studies of the coherence of microstructure-fiber supercontinuum.


The phase coherence of supercontinuum generation in microstructure fiber is quantified by performing a Young's type interference experiment between independently generated supercontinua from two separate fiber segments. Analysis of the resulting interferogram yields the wavelength dependence of the magnitude of the mutual degree of coherence, and a comparison of experimental results with numerical simulations suggests that the primary source of coherence degradation is the technical noise-induced fluctuations in the injected peak power.
