In collaboration with other labs iXblue Photonics with will present technical paper: 83 W efficient Nd-doped LMA fiber laser at 910 nm. - 24 January 2022 • 11:30 AM - 11:50 AM
We present here the development of ultra-low NA large mode area neodymium doped alumino-phospho-silica fibers with different clad-to-core ratios for high power laser emission around 910nm. This ratio is determinant in the competition between the 3-level transition at 910nm and 4-level transition of neodymium at 1060nm. The study shows that the 30/130µm (core/cladding) fiber was the most efficient, with a record output power of 83W at 910nm, yielding a 47% slope efficiency and a good beam quality (M²~1.5). Parasitic power at 1060nm was kept lower than 1W and no sign of roll-off was observed at maximum pump power. Presenter : Kilian Le Corre - iXblue Photonics (France)
