Highly tunable and efficient diode pumped operation of Tm3+ doped fibre lasers

Barnes, W.L. and Townsend, J.E. (1990) Highly tunable and efficient diode pumped operation of Tm3+ doped fibre lasers Electronics Letters, 26, (11), pp. 746-747. (doi:10.1049/el:19900487).

Record type: Article


The characteristics of a Tm3+ doped fibre laser pumped by a laser diode are reported. Operating at a wavelength of 1.94µm the laser had a threshold of 4.4mW, a launched power slope efficiency of 17% and 1 mW output power. Measurements on the tuning rang of Tm3+ are presented and lasing is found to be possible from 1.65-2.0µm, the specific range depending on the fibre type. The largest range for a single laser was 300nm.
