Abstract

Continuous-wave lasing of Bi-doped fiber lasers in a wavelength range of 11501215nm with a power of up to 15W has been obtained for the first time. The unsaturable optical losses in Bi-doped fibers have been revealed and their influence on the Bi-laser operation is investigated. Frequency doubling of the Bi-fiber laser radiation is demonstrated that can be used as a yellow light source (wavelength of 580nm).
