Description/Abstract

A Nd:YAG pumped Yb:Er:Phosphate glass laser oscillator has been actively mode-locked and Q-switched, producing stable ~70ps fwhm mode-locked pulses at 1.54µm. Peak powers of ~20 kW are achieved when Q-switched and mode-locked and ~20W when quasi-cw mode-locked. thus providing a convenient source suitable for investigation of nonlinear propagation behaviour in the negative dispersion region of silica optical fibres.
