A small core Yb3+-doped holey fibre laser and amplifier
K.Furusawa, J.H.V.Price, T.M.Monro, P.Petropoulos and D.J.Richardson
We have fabricated an ytterbium doped holey fibre with an effective area of just 2.5 μm2 at the laser wavelength (1.03μm). Using this fibre, we have demonstrated a low threshold mode-locked laser using frequency feedback technique. Furthermore, by seeding with pico-joule femtosecond pulses, we obtain Raman solitons tunable from 1.06 to 1.58 μm.
