110 W double-ended ytterbium-doped fiber superfluorescent source with M2=1.6
High-power operation of a broadband superfluorescent fiber source has been achieved via the process of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) in a double-clad Yb-doped multimode-offset-core fiber by using a novel fiber-end termination geometry to suppress lasing. The fiber was cladding pumped by a high-power diode source at 976 nm and yielded a maximum ASE output of 63 and 47 W from the two ends of the fiber, respectively. The maximum combined ASE output was 110 W with slope efficiency with respect to launched pump power of up to 68%. The wavelength spectrum of the ASE source spanned the range from ~1032 to 1120 nm, and the bandwidth (FWHM) of the emission spectrum was 40 nm. The output beam was slightly multimode with a beam-quality factor (M) of 1.6. The prospects for further improvement in performance are considered.

Abstract

High-power operation of a broadband superfluorescent fiber source has been achieved via the process of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) in a double-clad Yb-doped multimode-offset-core fiber by using a novel fiber-end termination geometry to suppress lasing. The fiber was cladding pumped by a high-power diode source at 976 nm and yielded a maximum ASE output of 63 and 47 W from the two ends of the fiber, respectively. The maximum combined ASE output was 110 W with slope efficiency with respect to launched pump power of up to 68%. The wavelength spectrum of the ASE source spanned the range from ~1032 to 1120 nm, and the bandwidth (FWHM) of the emission spectrum was 40 nm. The output beam was slightly multimode with a beam-quality factor (M) of 1.6. The prospects for further improvement in performance are considered.
