Abstract

A diode-pumped actively Q-switched and actively mode-locked Tm 3+-doped double-clad silicate fiber laser is reported providing up to 5 W of average output power at ∼60 kHz Q-switch envelope repetition rate and ∼8 μJ subpulses with up to 2.4 kW peak power. Using this source as a pump laser for supercontinuum generation in a ZBLAN fiber, over 1080mWof supercontinuum from 1.9 μmto beyond 3.6 μm was obtained at an overall efficiency of 3.3% with respect to the diode pump power.
