Q-switched neodymium-doped phosphate glass fibre lasers

Morkel, P.R., Jedrzejewski, K.P. and Taylor, E.R. (1993) Q-switched neodymium-doped phosphate glass fibre lasers IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics, 29, (7), pp. 2178-2188.

Record type: Article


The operation of a short-pulse, Q-switched, neodymium-doped fiber laser operating at 1.054µm is described experimentally and theoretically. The laser is efficiently pumped with a single-stripe AlGaAs laser diode and emits >1kW pulses. It is seen that due to high gain, short pulses with high energy extraction efficiency can be obtained. The feature of broad emission lines associated with rare-earth-doped glasses is exploited to demonstrate tunable, Q-switched operation over a 40 nm tuning range.
