High Power Narrow Linewidth 1.26 Micron Ho-Doped Fiber Amplifier
This proposal is for the development of an innovative, high power, and extremely reliable 1.26-micron Ho-doped fluoride fiber amplifier. The proposed fiber amplifier consists of a Ho-doped fluoride fiber pre-amplifier and power amplifier. Laser at 1187 nm will be used as a resonant pump laser source for Ho3+-doped fiber laser. High gain per unit length at 1.26 micron can be achieved in Ho-doped fluoride glass fiber due to the strong pump absorption at 1187 nm and strong emission at 1.2 micron transition. The proposed Ho-doped fiber amplifier will be implemented into a MOPA system with a 1.26 micron single frequency Ho-doped fiber laser.
This type of fiber based seed laser is needed for remote sensing of O and O -N for measuring atmospheric pressure. Concurrent on-board O2 measurements using lines at 1.26
