Abstract

A new type of pulsed fiber laser is suggested and developed—YbBi lasers. In such lasers the Yb fiber laser is Q-switched by use of a saturable absorber, a Bi-doped fiber placed in its own resonator, and pulsed lasing is obtained in both fiber lasers. Continous-wave diode-clad pumping of the YbBi lasers at a 975nm wavelength with power up to 16.5W results in pulsed laser action in a spectral diapason of 10501200nm with a maximum pulse energy of up to 100μJ, an average power up to 7.5W, and a repetition rate up to 100kHz.
