Abstract

Here we propose a broad supercontinuum spectrum generating highly nonlinear photonic crystal fiber (HN-PCF) which is used in ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography and optical transmission systems. The Photonic crystal fiber structures so designed are delivering Gaussian output with single mode nature. The required non linearity in the structure is able to generate the supercontinuum output in the wavelength range 400nm-2400nm. The real and imaginary parts of effective indexes plotted with respect to wavelength, are seen to be decreasing as the wavelength increase for three different values of air filling fractions.
