Compact high-energy Q-switched cladding-pumped fiber laser with a tuning range over 40nm
We describe a compact Q-switched diode pumped double-clad ytterbium-doped fiber laser. The fiber laser was bidirectionally pumped by two laser diodes (2W of output power each) via two side-injecting pump-couplers. We used a large multimode core of 15µm diameter to increase the laser gain volume and thus to achieve higher pulse energy. Experimentally this laser produced pulses with energy up to 170µJ with a peak power of 2kW (at a low repetition rate of 500Hz) and was tunable from 1060 to 1100nm.

Abstract

We describe a compact Q-switched diode pumped double-clad ytterbium-doped fiber laser. The fiber laser was bidirectionally pumped by two laser diodes (2W of output power each) via two side-injecting pump-couplers. We used a large multimode core of 15µm diameter to increase the laser gain volume and thus to achieve higher pulse energy. Experimentally this laser produced pulses with energy up to 170µJ with a peak power of 2kW (at a low repetition rate of 500Hz) and was tunable from 1060 to 1100nm.
