Abstract

An efficient CW bismuth fiber laser operating around 1.46 μm with an efficiency of >50% and an output power of >20W has been developed on a bismuth-doped GeO2-SiO2 fiber. The laser demonstrates weak dependence of the output power on temperature in comparison with bismuth lasers operating near 1.15 and 1.3 μm. The laser generation has been obtained in the range 1.39 to 1.54 μm. The first linearly polarized bismuth-doped fiber laser at 1.46 μm based on a PANDA-type fiber has been demonstrated.
