The article collection in this feature issue presents the most recent experimental and numerical studies of supercontinuum generation in bulk nonlinear media, photonic crystal fibers, and waveguides. It also introduces new results of design and fabrication of these structures with engineered dispersion, development of new diagnostic tools, as well as applications of spectral broadening and supercontinuum generation for pulse compression, imaging, and sensing.
