Intermodal four-wave mixing from femtosecond pulse-pumped photonic crystal fiber


Journal Article

Large Stokes-shift (∼4700 cm-1) four-wave mixing is generated in a deeply normal dispersion regime from a 20 cm commercial large-mode-area photonic crystal fiber pumped by amplified ∼800 nm femtosecond pulses. The phase-matching condition is realized through an intermodal scheme involving two pump photons in the fundamental fiber mode and a pair of Stokes/anti-Stokes photons in a higher-order fiber mode. Over 7% conversion efficiency from the pump input to 586 nm anti-Stokes signal has been attained. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
