Operation of ytterbium-doped silica fibre lasers at specific wavelengths using fibre gratings

Pask, H.M., Archambault, J.L., Carman, R.J., Hanna, D.C., Mackechnie, C.J., Reekie, L., Townsend, J.E. and Tropper, A.C. (1993) Operation of ytterbium-doped silica fibre lasers at specific wavelengths using fibre gratings At 11th National Quantum Electronics Conference (QE-11), United Kingdom. 30 Aug - 02 Sep 1993.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Yb-doped fibre lasers have been previously reported as versatile, efficient laser sources in the 1 µspectral region. The very broad Stark splitting of Yb energy levels in silica results in wide pump (830 - 1064 nm) and emission (975 - 1160 nm) bands. The emission band includes a number of wavelengths of interest for specific uses; examples include 1020 nm, the optimum pump wavelength for the Pr:ZBLAN amplifier and upconversion laser, and 1128 nm. which has been utilised to pump a Tm:ZBLAN upconversion laser.
