A solid-core tellurite glass fiber with 1.8 dB / m loss at 1.55 μm was made by using the built-in casting preform fabrication method and rod-in-tube fiber drawing technique. Pumping a 10 cm fiber piece with picosecond pulses of 3– 5 × 10 12 W / cm 2 , 0.1% of the fundamental power limited by the coherence length of 0.3– 5 μm was converted into visible third-harmonic power tunable over a broad near-IR wavelength ranging from 1500 to 1680 nm . Frequency conversion from the mid-IR to near-IR was found to be even more efficient due to the longer coherence lengths of 12– 20 μm in the wavelength range of 2200– 2500 nm .
