Center for Optics, Photonics and Lasers, Universite Laval, Quebec G1K 7P4, Canada
Opt Lett 34:3313-5. 2009..Our results, including the slope efficiency of 26.6% with respect to launched pump power, suggest that erbium could be a better alternative than holmium in the search for a replacement for the flashlamp-pumped Er:YAG at 2.94 microm...
- Understanding the fiber tip thermal runaway present in 3 µm fluoride glass fiber lasersNicolas Caron
Center for Optics, Photonics and Lasers, Universite Laval, Quebec G1V 0A6, Canada
Opt Express 20:22188-94. 2012..We accurately model this phenomenon by combining the diffusion theory with a basic thermal equation. Experimental measurements are in agreement with the model predictions for a good range of operating conditions...
- 3.7 W fluoride glass Raman fiber laser operating at 2231 nmVincent Fortin
Center for Optics, Photonics, and Lasers COPL, Universite Laval, Quebec, Canada
Opt Express 20:19412-9. 2012..2 μm is reported. A maximum output power of 3.7 W was obtained from a nested cavity setup with a laser slope efficiency of 15% with respect to the launched pump power...
- 20 W passively cooled single-mode all-fiber laser at 2.8 μmDominic Faucher
Center for Optics, Photonics, and Lasers COPL, Universite Laval, Quebec G1K 7P4, Canada
Opt Lett 36:1104-6. 2011..3%. We believe this is the first experimental confirmation of the predicted pump energy recycling for this fiber laser. The narrow laser linewidth varied from 0.09 to 0.16 nm from low to maximum output power...
