1kW pulsed fibre laser for time division multiplexed sensor systems

Morkel, P.R., Jedrzejewski, K.P., Taylor, E.R. and Payne, D.N. (1992) 1kW pulsed fibre laser for time division multiplexed sensor systems At OFS: 8th Optical Fibre Sensors Conference, United States. 29 - 31 Jan 1992.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Q-switching of fibre lasers is an attractive means of converting the relatively low CW power of pump laser diodes into short, high intensity pulses for use in time-resolved sensor systems. Peak powers of 100W at 1.06µm with 15ms duration have previously been reported based on the use of Nd-doped alumino-silicate fibre as the gain medium. We report here the attainment of much higher powers in short pulses in a module specifically designed for high-resolution distributed sensor applications.
