Abstract

A high-power diode-cladding-pumped Ho 3 + , Pr 3 + -doped fluoride glass fiber laser is demonstrated. The laser produced a maximum output power of 2.5 W at a slope efficiency of 32% using diode lasers emitting at 1150 nm . The long-emission wavelength of 2.94 μ m measured at maximum pump power, which is particularly suited to medical applications, indicates that tailoring of the proportion of Pr 3 + ions can provide specific emission wavelengths while providing sufficient de-excitation of the lower laser level.
