Abstract

A diode-laser-pumped neodymium-doped fiber laser is presented. For a launched pump power of 85 mW, the fiber laser had a cw output power of 43 mW, which is approximately an order of magnitude greater output power than any previously reported diode-pumped neodymium fiber laser operating on the 4F3/24I9/2 transition, which covers the 900–950-nm region. The fiber laser had a threshold power of 10 mW and a slope efficiency of 58% with respect to launched pump power. Tuning with a diffraction grating was obtained from 896 to 937 nm with narrow-band output powers as high as 32 mW. Emission was also obtained at 939.5 nm with use of a fiber Bragg grating as the output reflector.
