Tiivistelmä

We demonstrate a high power erbium-ytterbium co-doped large-core fiber laser with narrow linewidth, an M-2 value of 1.7 and a broad tuning range. The fiber was cladding-pumped by a diode stack emitting at 975 nm. The laser had a linewidth around 0.16 nm and was tuned from 1533 nm to 1566 nm by compression-tuning a fiber Bragg grating. Output powers in excess of 30 W were obtained over the entire laser tuning range which was limited by the low gain at wavelengths shorter than 1533 nm and by the grating fabrication wavelength at 1566 nm. The laser slope efficiency was similar to30% and the threshold similar to3.3 W. Our results underline the capability for efficient, broad-band, high-power operation of large-core Er-Yb doped fibers and demonstrate compatibility with telecom components like standard single-mode fibers and fiber Bragg gratings.
