Abstract

We demonstrate a single-core multiply doped fiber that, when pumped with a single pump source of 800nm, emits a more than two-octaves-spanning fluorescence spectrum ranging from 365 to 2300nm. The fiber preform is manufactured from granulated oxides, and the core is doped with five different rare earths. At a pump power of 250mW the total emitted power is 34μW; given a core diameter of 6.5μm and a numerical aperture of 0.1, the radiance exceeds 3kWsr1cm2. We also demonstrate direct diode pumping of the fiber.
