Abstract

Self-sweeping of laser wavelength corresponding to holmium emission near 2100 nm is reported. The sweeping occurred in ~4 nm interval with rate ~0.7 nm/s from longer towards shorter wavelengths. Origins of the selection of the sweeping direction are discussed. The laser wavelength drift with time was registered by Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. To our knowledge it is the first observation of self-swept fiber laser beyond 2000 nm.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2 (a) Holmium fiber laser setup. One port of the fiber loop mirror was used to monitor the laser light either through a circulator and FBG at 2100 nm (b); or directly, so that the series of relaxation oscillations (c) and longitudinal mode-beating (d) could be observed.
