Ultrafast fiber lasers in the 3 μm water window

Abstract

We demonstrate a holmium-doped fluoride fiber laser that emits 37 kW peak power pulses with 180 fs pulse durations at 3 m μ. The 100 nm redshift of holmium gain relative to erbium allows for minimal interaction with atmospheric water absorption resulting in a significant increase in performance for 3 μm class ultrafast fiber lasers.
