We demonstrate a 70 mol % GeO2 doped fiber for mid-infrared supercontinuum generation. Experiments ensure a highest output power for a broadest spectrum from 1000nm to 3000nm from this fiber, while being pumped by a broadband 4 stage Erbium fiber based MOPA. Our investigations reveal the unexploited potential of Germania doped fiber for mid-infrared supercontinuum generation. To the best of our knowledge, this is the record power, for an ultrabroadband, all-fiberized, and compact device size supercontinuum light source based on Silica and Germania fiber, ever demonstrated to the date.
