Abstract

A kilowatt-level Raman fiber laser is demonstrated with an integrated Ytterbium-Raman fiber amplifier architecture. A high power Ytterbium-doped fiber master oscillator power amplifier at 1080 nm is seeded with a 1120 nm fiber laser at the same time. By this way, a kilowatt-level Raman pump laser at 1080 nm and signal laser at 1120 nm is combined in the fiber core. The subsequent power conversion from 1080 nm to 1120 nm is accomplished in a 70 m long passive fiber. A 1.28 kW all-fiber Raman amplifier at 1120 nm with an optical efficiency of 70% is demonstrated, limited only by the available pump power. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of Raman fiber laser with over one kilowatt output.

(a) Simulated power evolution of the pump laser and each Raman Stokes laser along the Raman gain fiber length at a pump power of 5.0 kW at 1070 nm, from the left to right, the curves are for the pump laser and 1st, 2nd, … 11th order Raman Stokes laser, respectively. (b) Simulated output power of each Raman Stokes laser as a function of the pump power with a fiber length of 120 m, from the left to right, the curves are for the 1st, 2nd, … 11th order Raman Stokes laser, respectively.
