Abstract

The stimulated Raman-scattering (SRS) gain coefficient has been measured quantitatively for the first time to our knowledge in Yb:Sr5(PO4)3F to be 1.23 ± 0.12 cm/GW at 1053 nm. These data, along with surface and bulk losses, feedback that is due to surface reflections, gain saturation, and bandwidth, have been applied to a quantitative model that predicts the effects of SRS within a laser amplifier system where the laser gain media show SRS gain. Limitations and impact to the laser amplifier performance are discussed, along with possible techniques to reduce SRS loss.
