Measurements of fibre laser losses via relaxation oscillation

Measurements of fibre laser losses via relaxation oscillation
Measurements of fibre laser losses via relaxation oscillation
We describe a simple method for measuring fibre laser losses. The method is based on inducing relaxation oscillations by modulating the laser gain. From the oscillation frequency and known fibre parameters a loss figure can be extracted. Loss measurements performed on a Nd-doped fibre laser are presented.

Abstract

We describe a simple method for measuring fibre laser losses. The method is based on inducing relaxation oscillations by modulating the laser gain. From the oscillation frequency and known fibre parameters a loss figure can be extracted. Loss measurements performed on a Nd-doped fibre laser are presented.
