Abstract

We report what we believe to be the first demonstration of stable short pulse ( 10 ns ) generation from a gain-switched Tm-doped fiber laser in the 2 μ m spectral region. A modulated 1.55 μ m pump laser was used for fast gain switching to regulate the conventionally chaotic spiking in the gain-switched fiber laser. From a 6.3 μ m core all-fiber oscillator, over a kilowatt of peak power was obtained at the slope efficiency of 50% and freely varying repetition rate up to 500 kHz .
