Paper Abstract

Numerical modeling of a cw-pumped all-solid-state fiber erbium laser passively Q-switched with a Co2+:ZnSe crystal is proceeded for the first time to our knowledge. Features of the laser dynamics are investigated from a super-luminescence regime via passive Q-switching mode to cw operation. The basical parameters of the passive Q-switching mode - giant pulses' repetition rate, duration, energy, and peak power - are calculated numerically depending on the laser pump power. Results of the modeling are shown to be in a quite-well agreement with the experimental realization of the laser.
