Paper Abstract

Numerical simulation results obtained in investigating the generation of laser pulses with 1.55 μm wavelength generated by an Er3+, Er3+-Yb3+ or Cr3+-Yb3+-Er3+ laser or fiber laser oscillator operated in passive optical Q-switching regime are presented. Three types of passive optical Q-switch cell are investigated: the usual one based on Co2+ or UO2 embedded in different hosts; the second consisting of Co2+ nano-crystals. The spectroscopic characteristics of these Q-switch cells are analyzed and correlated with criteria obtained with a numerical simulation procedure based on solving a rate equation system.
