Redshifted solitonic resonant radiation (RR) is a fascinating phase-matching phenomenon that occurs when an optical pulse, launched in the normal dispersion regime of photonic crystal fiber, radiates across the zero-dispersion point. The formation of such phase-matched radiation is independent of the generation of any optical soliton and mainly governed by the leading edge of an input pump which forms a shock front. The radiation is generated at the anomalous dispersion regime and found to be confined both in the time and frequency domain. We experimentally investigate the formation of such radiation in fabricated photonic crystal fiber for two different pulse width regimes (femtosecond and picosecond) with detailed theoretical analyses. Theoretically predicted results corroborate well with experimental results and confirm the existence of such unique radiation which is robust in nature. Further, we extend the study to long-length fiber and investigate the interplay between redshifted solitonic RR and intrapulse Raman scattering (IPRS). The consequence of the formation of such solitonic RR in an anomalous dispersion domain is found to be very interesting where it seeds a series of Raman solitons and behaves like a secondary source. These Raman solitons are now continuously redshifted and open up the possibility of wideband supercontinuum generation even in normal dispersion pumping. We fabricate a suitable photonic crystal fiber and experimentally demonstrate the RR-seeded IPRS process.
