Research Institution
In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a widely tunable, narrow linewidth, single frequency fiber laser near 2.05 micron by developing an innovative Ho-doped single mode fiber. Such near 2.05 micron fiber laser is needed for coherent lidar and interferometric fiber sensing. Based on our successful demonstration in Phase I, our newly developed Ho-doped fibers have the capability of single frequency fiber laser operation in a wide spectral range from 2040nm up to 2100nm. In Phase II, we will further optimize our innovative H0-doped single mode fiber, develop a new laser cavity design for fast and broad tuning, build a deliverable prototype laser unit with wide mode-hop-free fast tuning to NASA.
