Diode pumped silicate fiber for visible laser emission

  title={Diode pumped silicate fiber for visible laser emission},
  author={Matthew R. Majewski and Stuart D. Jackson},
We demonstrate yellow laser emission using silicate glass fiber as the gain medium. By employing core pumping using widely available GaN diode lasers with emission at 445 nm, we show that Dy3+-doped aluminosilicate glass fiber can be readily excited creating sufficient gain at 581 nm. In this proof of concept demonstration, the maximum output power generated was 3 mW with a slope efficiency approximately 1.8% with respect to injected pump. This first in class demonstration opens a new field…

2 W Single-Mode Visible Laser Oscillation in Pr-Doped Double-Clad Structured Waterproof Fluoro-Aluminate Glass Fiber
Visible lasers have many applications, such as, optical storage, display technologies, medicine, and flow cytometry. Especially primary visible solid-state laser (PVSSL) is a very attractive
High-efficiency, yellow-light Dy3+-doped fiber laser with wavelength tuning from 568.7 to 581.9  nm.
This report reports the first demonstration of a wavelength-tunable and highly efficient Dy3+-doped fiber laser operating in the yellow spectral region and is, to the best of the knowledge, the highest power and conversion efficiency of a yellow-light Dy3-doping fiber laser with wavelength tunability.
Towards power scaling of 2.8  μm fiber lasers.
The demonstration of a 2824 nm passively cooled erbium-doped fluoride fiber laser delivering a record average output power of 41.6 W in continuous-wave operation is reported, which is the highest averageoutput power achieved with a mid-infrared fiber laser.
2.3  W monolithic fiber laser operating in the visible.
This demonstration breaks ground for the development of reliable high-power visible fiber lasers by being the first monolithic visible fiber laser pumped by a pigtailed diode.

Upconversion CW laser at 284 nm in a Nd:YAG-pumped double-cladding thulium-doped ZBLAN fiber laser
A successful continuous-wave (CW) ultraviolet (UV) laser in a Tm+3-doped ZBLAN fiber, operated at 284 nm (1I6 → 3H6 transition of Tm+3) is demonstrated. The excitation uses a four-step upconversion
Emission beyond 4  μm and mid-infrared lasing in a dysprosium-doped indium fluoride (InF3) fiber.
A frequency domain excited state lifetime measurement comparison between fluoride hosts suggests that multiphonon effects are significantly reduced in indium fluoride fiber, paving the way to more efficient, longer wavelength lasers compared to ZBLAN fibers.
