Abstract

Highly Nonlinear Photonic Crystal Fiber(HNPCF) which exhibits low losses and lower effective mode area over a wide range of wavelength has been shown here. This highly nonlinear photonic crystal fibers which guides light into a small solid silica core surrounded by large air holes, resulting in strong confinement of the light and, correspondingly, a large nonlinear coefficient. Nonlinear effects when interacting with optical solitons, and consequence of this interconnected nonlinear response generate new frequencies which broadens the spectrum because of this unusual and rather impressive property together with its coherence, generate a supercontinuum(SC).This paper describes about the different fiber parameters and changes in there behavior with wavelength and the effects of nonlinearities on optical solitons which lead to supercontinuum , which can be used as an input light source for Optical Coherence Tomography Systems.
