Abstract

Recent experiments have shown that monomode silica fibre which has rare earth impurity ions incorporated into the core region can exhibit laser action with low threshold and high efficiency when end pumped by an external laser source. Initial studies featuring the 4F3/2 to 4 I 11/2 transition around 1.08 µm of Nd3+ ions in monomode silica fibre investigated this system under conditions of Q-switching and active modelocking and demonstrated tuning over the range 1.07 µm - 1.14 µm. A number of different sources have been used to pump fibre lasers including a cw dye laser, and GaAs diode laser, and an Ar+ ion laser.
