Abstract:

We report on the development of the 800-nm diode-pumped thuliumholmium TmHo 2.1-micron composite fiber laser. This technical report will detail the absorption and emission spectroscopy of Tm- and Ho-doped silicate glasses, present the lasing performance results of the TmHo composite fiber laser, present analysis of the optical modes of the TmHo composite fiber, and compare the results of laser simulation of the fiber laser to results from experiment.
