Abstract

A new type of pulsed fiber laser is suggested and developed— Yb Bi lasers. In such lasers the Yb fiber laser is Q-switched by use of a saturable absorber, a Bi-doped fiber placed in its own resonator, and pulsed lasing is obtained in both fiber lasers. Continous-wave diode-clad pumping of the Yb Bi lasers at a 975 nm wavelength with power up to 16.5 W results in pulsed laser action in a spectral diapason of 1050 1200 nm with a maximum pulse energy of up to 100 μ J , an average power up to 7.5 W , and a repetition rate up to 100 kHz .
