A Pr3+-doped ZBLAN fibre upconversion laser pumped by an Yb3+-doped silica fibre laser

Pask, H.M., Tropper, A.C. and Hanna, D.C. (1997) A Pr3+-doped ZBLAN fibre upconversion laser pumped by an Yb3+-doped silica fibre laser Optics Communications, 134, (1-6), pp. 139-144.

Record type: Article


An Yb3+-doped silica fibre laser pumped at 840nm has been used to provide the two pump wavelengths, 840nm and 1020nm, required for pumping a Pr3+-doped ZBLAN fibre upconversion laser. The performance of the upconversion laser at 491, 520 and 635nm is presented, with measurements of fibre loss at 635nm and 520nm which indicate that fibre losses are an important factor limiting the performance of the upconversion laser
