Abstract

The manipulation of a supercontinuum via delayed optical feedback is investigated experimentally. The supercontinuum is generated in a microstructured fiber and a feedback ring resonator introduces the optical feedback and leads to the formation of different regimes of nonlinear dynamics. Via the feedback phase the optical spectrum and the regimes of nonlinear dynamics can be adjusted systematically. The impact of delay detuning on two different length scales, namely on a sub-wavelength scale and on a larger scale in the order of 10 μm are discussed. Additionally, the adjustment of the optical spectrum without changing the regime of nonlinear dynamics is demonstrated.
