Holmium fibre lasers are required for remote sensing, LIDAR and some medical applications [1]. In addition, pulsed Holmium fibre lasers also offer an attractive power scalable alternative to Ho:YAG and Ho:YLF lasers for pumping mid-infrared optical parametric oscillators (OPOs). In these applications it is necessary to operate at a high peak power (>20 kW… CONTINUE READING
