We experimentally study the competition between Kerr beam self-cleaning and Raman beam cleanup in a multimode air–silica microstructure optical fiber. Kerr beam self-cleaning of the pump is observed for a certain range of input powers only. Stokes Raman beam generation and cleanup lead to both depletion and degradation of beam quality for the pump. The interplay of modal four wave mixing and Raman scattering in the infrared domain leads to the generation of a multimode supercontinuum ranging from 500 nm up to 1800 nm.

Abstract

We experimentally study the competition between Kerr beam self-cleaning and Raman beam cleanup in a multimode air–silica microstructure optical fiber. Kerr beam self-cleaning of the pump is observed for a certain range of input powers only. Stokes Raman beam generation and cleanup lead to both depletion and degradation of beam quality for the pump. The interplay of modal four wave mixing and Raman scattering in the infrared domain leads to the generation of a multimode supercontinuum ranging from 500 nm up to 1800 nm.
