NATO SET-170 RTG Mid-Infrared Fiber Lasers Demonstrates 4 µm Lasing in Novel Glass Material
The NATO SET-170 RTG entitled “Mid-Infrared Fiber Lasers” was formed to advance the state-of-the-art in fiber-based coherent sources operating at wavelengths longer than 3 µm. A key accomplishment of its Programme of Work is demonstration of lasing at 4 µm in novel Ho3+-doped fluoroindate glass fabricated by Le Verre Fluoré (France), pumped by a Cr3+:LiSAF laser operating at 890 nm. Results were modest, but promising. Modelling supported by spectroscopic analysis indicates that efficient lasing is possible in Ho3:fluoroindate fiber given a suitable fiber design and dopant concentration. A journal paper on these results is in preparation.
