High power (60mW) single frequency erbium:ytterbium codoped fiber laser

Samson, B.N., Dong, L., Loh, W.H. and Hsu, K. (1997) High power (60mW) single frequency erbium:ytterbium codoped fiber laser At 3rd Asia-Pacific Conference on Communications (APCC 97), Australia. 07 - 10 Dec 1997.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The characteristics of a high power Er3+:Yb3+ single frequency fiber laser pumped at 980nm are reported. The device gives 60mW output power with RIN 10MHz and linewidth 500kHz. At low output powers (< 30mW) the slope efficiency is as high as 25%, falling to 12% at higher powers, the saturation behaviour is related to a bottleneck effect due to the finite Yb-Er transfer rate. Improved performance can be obtained using new fibers with an increased rare-earth concentration which show negligible signs of erbium clustering
