Wideband tunable high power narrow linewidth erbium-ytterbium doped fiber laser using compression-tunable fiber Bragg grating

Wideband tunable high power narrow linewidth erbium-ytterbium doped fiber laser using compression-tunable fiber Bragg grating
Wideband tunable high power narrow linewidth erbium-ytterbium doped fiber laser using compression-tunable fiber Bragg grating
We demonstrate a high power erbium-ytterbium co-doped large-core fiber laser with narrow linewidth, an M value of 1.7 and a broad tuning range. The fiber was cladding-pumped by a diode stack emitting at 975nm. The laser had a linewidth around 0.16nm and was tuned from 1533nm to 1566nm by compression-tuning a fiber Bragg grating. Output powers in excess of 30W were obtained over the entire laser tuning range which was limited by the low gain at wavelengths shorter than 1533nm and by the grating fabrication wavelength at 1566nm. The laser slope efficiency was ~30% and the threshold ~3.3W. Our results underline the capability for efficient, broad-band, high-power operation of large-core Er-Yb doped fibers and demonstrate compatibility with telecom components like standard single-mode fibers and fiber Bragg gratings.

Abstract

We demonstrate a high power erbium-ytterbium co-doped large-core fiber laser with narrow linewidth, an M value of 1.7 and a broad tuning range. The fiber was cladding-pumped by a diode stack emitting at 975nm. The laser had a linewidth around 0.16nm and was tuned from 1533nm to 1566nm by compression-tuning a fiber Bragg grating. Output powers in excess of 30W were obtained over the entire laser tuning range which was limited by the low gain at wavelengths shorter than 1533nm and by the grating fabrication wavelength at 1566nm. The laser slope efficiency was ~30% and the threshold ~3.3W. Our results underline the capability for efficient, broad-band, high-power operation of large-core Er-Yb doped fibers and demonstrate compatibility with telecom components like standard single-mode fibers and fiber Bragg gratings.
