We fabricate uniform silica microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) having very simple geometry with only three rings of air holes in order to generate efficient supercontinuum (SC). The fabricated MOFs possess suspended core with comparatively larger pitch and are the most active component in a SC source. We use the suspension factor as a design parameter which significantly influences the nonlinear and dispersion properties of the MOFs. It is experimentally shown that our fabricated MOFs generate efficient SC both in femtosecond and picosecond pumping domain. We also numerically model the nonlinear dynamics for SC sources in order to identify the nonlinear processes and illustrate the spectral broadening mechanisms.
