Abstract

We report on the laser emission of erbium-doped fluoride glasses in the spectral range from 2.7 to 2.8 μm . The pump source was a fiber-coupled InGaAs semiconductor laser emitting near λp~970 nm . The laser performance of bulk samples with various ErF3 contents was investigated with respect to the optimum doping concentration, which is estimated to be higher than 8 mol. %. A maximum output power of Pout > 160 mW and a slope efficiency of η = 10% were achieved. Results are compared with previously published data on erbium-doped ZBLAN fiber and LiYF4 crystal lasers.
