Abstract

A single-mode Nd3+-doped tellurite glass fiber laser operating at 1.061 μm is described. We believe this is the first demonstration of a single-mode fiber laser in tellurite glass. A lasing threshold of 27 mW of 818-nm absorbed pump power and a slope efficiency output power versus pump power of 23% emitted from one end were observed in the fiber cavity with 11.9% Fresnel reflection at both ends.
