Abstract

High power fibre laser sources in the 2 µm wavelength region with picosecond-scale pulse durations have attractive applications such as materials processing, eye-safe radar and nonlinear frequency conversion to midinfrared wavelengths. Current implementations are typically based on the amplification of picosecond pulses obtained from a mode-locked oscillator, and pulse energies of several hundred nano-Joule and peak powers of the order of 10 kW have been achieved.
