Abstract

We present a new method to control the power of individual spectral components of a multicolor laser by mirrors with variable air gaps and by a composite resonator configuration. We demonstrate a Pr/Yb-ZBLAN fiber laser with arbitrary spectral composition of three simultaneously emitted components at 492 nm , 520 nm , and 635 nm . With 100 mW pump power at 850 nm launched into the fiber, the total laser output exceeds 10 mW .
