Abstract

We demonstrate high-power operation from a singly Ho 3 + -doped silica fiber laser that is cladding pumped directly with diode lasers operating at 1150 nm . Internal slope efficiencies approaching the Stokes limit were produced, and the maximum output power was 2.2 W . This result was achieved using a low Ho 3 + -ion concentration and La 3 + -ion codoping, which together limit the transfer of energy between excited Ho 3 + ions.
