Abstract

Bi-doped fiber lasers (BiDFLs) demonstrated so far have been limited to 1080 nm pumping band at which high power laser diodes (LDs) are not readily available. [1,2] Direct LD pumping will make the BiDFLs more compact and cost-effective. Pumping wavelengths at 915 nm and 976 nm are interesting because they well overlap with the absorption band of the Bi-doped fibers (BiDFs). Here, we investigate feasibility of the 915 nm and 976 nm pumping band in addition to 1080 nm pumping by measuring excited state absorption (ESA) in BiDFs.
