Paper Abstract

A 2-micron Ho:YLF laser end-pumped by 1.94-micron Tm:fiber laser was developed. A ring resonator oscillator of 3 m length and amplifier system was adopted. The laser was operated at high repetition rates of 200-5000 Hz in room temperature. The amplifier outputs were about 7.4W in CW and more than 6 Win Q-switch operation of repetition rates more than 500 Hz. This laser was developed to be used for coherent wind and CO2 measurements. Then, injection seeding was applied to the ring resonator and single mode laser emission was obtained. The laser was used for Doppler wind lidar measurements and wind profiles were obtained.
