Mode-locked Ho-doped laser with subsequent diode-pumped amplifier in an all-fiber design operating at 2052 nm
Type: Zeitschriftenaufsatz (reviewed)
We present a mode-locked holmium-doped all-fiber soliton laser operating in the 2052 nm wavelength range. The ultrashort pulse oscillator is simultaneously self-providing 1950-nm radiation for efficient in-band pumping in a subsequent thulium-/holmium-doped fiber tandem amplifier. More than 76 nJ-pulses for Ho:YLF or Ho:YVO4 amplifier seeding have been achieved.
