Paper Abstract

Simultaneous laser oscillation near 2m and 2. 3jm on the 3H4 -3H6 and 3F4 - 3H5 transitions respectively has been demonstrated in a thulium-doped fluorozirconate fiber when pumping at 79mm. Diode-pumped operation of the 3H4 - 3H6 transition has also been achieved. Pulsed laser emission at 1 . 72jm has been observed on the 3/2 ''9/2 transition in an erbium-doped fluorozirconate fiber when pumping at 488nm or 5l4nm.
