Abstract

The repetition rate of an erbium-doped fiber comb is multiplied by an optical cavity for filtering, and the optical spectral distribution is broadened in a highly nonlinear fiber. For erbium-doped fiber combs, filtering cavities are commonly used to obtain the high-repetition-rate combs by the repetition rate multiplication. After the multiplication, optical spectral broadening by a highly nonlinear fiber is necessary for applications to optical frequency measurements in broad bandwidth and astronomy. In this study, the broadened spectrum covers over the range from 1050 to 2250 nm, which is over an octave so that the determination of the filtered mode numbers is feasible. The optical power of the broadened beam within a narrow optical bandwidth is also measured in the time domain and in the frequency domain to examine the broadening property.
