CW, tunable and Q-switched operation at 938nm of a diode-laser pumped Nd3+-doped fibre laser
L.Reekie, I.M.Jauncey, S.B.Poole, D.N.Payne
Fiber lasers have been shown to offer a number of advantages over conventional crystal lasers operating in the near-IR region. The small mode size in the single-mode fiber enables high pump intensities to be relatively easily achieved without associated thermal problems. In addition, cw GaAlAs diode lasers have provided convenient pump sources for fiber lasers, and efficient operation at 1.09 and 1.55 μm has been demonstrated.
