摘要

掺铥光纤激光器在医疗、塑料焊接、激光雷达和光学参量振荡等领域有着重要应用。介绍了掺铥石英光纤、高功率连续掺铥光纤激光器和脉冲掺铥光纤激光器最新研究进展,分析和讨论了掺铥光纤激光器的发展和技术瓶颈,分别从光纤设计、抽运方式以及激光器结构三个方面提出优化和调整,通过改善掺铥光纤激光器的热管理和非线性效应,实现更高输出功率的掺铥光纤激光器。

Abstract

Thulium-doped fiber lasers (TDFLs) have been applied in extensive areas, such as medical treatment, plastic welding, lidar, and optical-parameter-oscillation (OPO). In this paper, the research progress of Tm3+-doped silica fibers and high power TDFLs is presented and the bottlenecks of TDFLs are discussed and analyzed. Adjustments and optimization are promoted from three aspects including fiber design, laser structure and pump approach, and high power TDFLs will be achieved by improving thermal management and non-linear effect.
