From: Observation of laser pulse propagation in optical fibers with a SPAD camera

Figure 1

A 40x microscope objective couples the 130 fs pulses at a wavelength of 780 nm pulses from the Coherent Chameleon laser into the PCF. The PCF is arranged in a spiral to allow the SPAD to view a long propagation length despite its relatively small field of view. Red, orange, and green wavelengths are generated after a short propagation distance, whereas higher energy wavelengths appear further along the fiber length.
