Paper Abstract

We measure changes in the 2um absorption and emission spectra of thulium-doped silica fiber lasers operating from 80 K – 373 K. Reduction of the long wavelength tail of the 3H6-3H4 absorption feature under cryogenic cooling allows for efficient lasing in the 1800nm region. Greater than 17 W of output power was generated at 1850 nm by 793 nm diode-pumping a free-running single-mode thulium oscillator under cryogenic cooling conditions.
