Supercontinuum generation using ultrafast pulses and nonlinear optical fibers has produced numerous broadband sources and enabled disparate applica­tions. To ensure high spectral coherence, investigators have taken the advantage of birefringent all normal fibers and/or operating regimes that the supercontinuum is exclusively generated in a normal dispersion regime of birefringent fibers. (For additional information on all normal dispersion effects for supercontinuum generation, see Chap. 6by Alexander M. Heidt).
