Paper Abstract

The high power fiber laser is one of the hot topics in the laser science and technology recent years. It shows good application prospects in the field of communication, printing, medicine, sensing and so on. Double-cladding rare- earth-doped fiber lasers are currently a preferred choice for high power performance. This paper reports the theoretical and experimental research of Yb-doped double- cladding fiber laser pumped by a 915-nm broad-stripe laser diode. An F-P cavity configuration was adopted by using an output mirror with 95% reflectivity at 1020 nm to approximately 1100 nm, and a dichromatic mirror for pump coupling. A slope efficiency of 51%, and a total optical-to- optical conversion efficiency of 24% were obtained experimentally.
