Theoretical modeling of Watt-level average power Tm-doped fluoride glass fiber amplifiers operating at 1.87 /spl mu/m is presented. To characterize and optimize these devices a computer model has been developed taking into account the full spectral information of the laser transition as well as all important ionic levels, their decay schemes and important cross-relaxation rates, being capable of modeling steady-state and especially transient characteristics of an optically pumped fiber as is… CONTINUE READING
