Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Advantages of rare-earth-doped fiber lasers over stoichiometric rare earth lasers were discussed. Yb-doped fiber laser with its emission wavelength range centered around 1060nm was studied. The fiber laser is capable of delivering continuous-wave (cw) output power in excess of tens of watts with wall-plug efficiency in excess of 20%. Visible wavelengths were generated by Raman-Stokes-shifting the output of the Yb-doped fiber laser and frequency-doubling the shifted wavelength.
