Abstract

We report on our research into fluoride fiber-based 3 μm class laser sources. Using holmium as the gain medium, record-high peak power levels are achieved in mode-locked laser systems that emit ultrashort pulses in the water vapor transmission window around 2.9 μm. Highly nonlinear and dispersion-engineered hybrid chalcogenide-polymer microwires are utilized to extend the frequency range of those sources further into the mid-infrared. In addition, dysprosium- doped fibers are employed to demonstrate continuous-wave lasers that are tunable between 3 and 3.5 μm.
