Neodymium doped chalcogenide glass fibre laser
At Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO) Pacific Rim '97, Japan.
14 - 18 Jul 1997.
We report on laser action in a Neodymium doped Gallium Lanthanum Sulphide glass fibre. Laser action at 1080nm was obtained in a 22mm long multimode glass fibre with a neodymium doped core, fabricated by the rod-in-tube technique. The laser was pumped continuous wave with a Ti:sapphire laser at 815nm and showed a self-pulsing behaviour.
