Experimental investigations on nonlinear dynamics in supercontinuum generation with feedback.

A system for supercontinuum generation by using a photonic crystal fiber within a synchronously pumped ring cavity is presented. The feedback led to an interaction of the generated supercontinuum with the following femtosecond laser pulses and thus to the formation of a nonlinear oscillator. The nonlinear dynamical behavior of this system was investigated experimentally and compared with numerical simulations. Steady state, period doubling and higher order multiplication of the repetition rate as well as limit cycle and chaotic behavior were observed in the supercontinuum generating system.
