Large mode area fibres for high power lasers

Large mode area fibres for high power lasers
Fibre lasers are rapidly becoming increasingly attractive as high power versatile sources. We report here the development of large mode area erbium doped fibres. These fibres were then incorporated into simple laser cavities resulting in record pulse energy levels. Pulse energies as high as 512µJ were obtained in a Q-switched laser and in a passively mode-locked configuration near transformed limited femtosecond pulses with energies of 1nJ were obtained.

Abstract

Fibre lasers are rapidly becoming increasingly attractive as high power versatile sources. We report here the development of large mode area erbium doped fibres. These fibres were then incorporated into simple laser cavities resulting in record pulse energy levels. Pulse energies as high as 512µJ were obtained in a Q-switched laser and in a passively mode-locked configuration near transformed limited femtosecond pulses with energies of 1nJ were obtained.
