Abstract

We experimentally demonstrated supercontinuum generation through a hollow core photonic bandgap fiber (HC-PBGF) filled with DNA nanocrystals modified by copper ions in a solution. Both double-crossover nano DNA structure and copper-ion-modified structure provided a sufficiently high optical nonlinearity within a short length of hollow optical fiber. Adding a higher concentration of copper ion into the DNA nanocrystals, the bandwidth of supercontinuum output was monotonically increased. Finally, we achieved the bandwidth expansion of about 1000 nm to be sufficient for broadband multi-spectrum applications.
