Paper Abstract

A tunable laser operating near 944nm is important for micro LIDAR systems. In this work, we have carried out a systematic study of Nd doped fiber glass materials which can be used for this purpose. The emission cross-sections of these materials at 944nm have been calculated. The wavelength dependence of emission of these materials has been studied. Among the silica-based material Nd doped silica fiber glass has the largest cross section for 944nm laser emission. The co-dopants reduce this cross section. Some Nd doped non-silica materials have higher stimulated emission cross-section than silica-based materials.
