Abstract

We describe a novel optofluidic fiber arrangement that allows for nonlinear effects enhancement between fluids and laser light while suppressing the generation of cavitation bubbles. By filling this optofluidic system with toluene and pumping it with a nanosecond microchip laser, we demonstrate the efficient generation of a broadband Raman frequency comb spanning from 532 to more than 1000 nm. It is further shown that the Raman frequency comb dramatically broadens toward broadband continuum light due to the stimulated Raman–Kerr scattering.
