Paper Abstract

Here we report, for the first time to our knowledge, a cladding-pumped passively Q-switched Er-Yb codoped fiber laser with Cr2+:ZnSe and Co2+:MgAl2O4 as saturable absorbers. The maximum average output power for both crystals was 1.4 W, with typical pulse energy was 20 μJ corresponding to 60 W peak power. The pulse duration could be varied between 370 - 700 ns and repetition rate between 20 and 85 kHz by adjusting the pump power.
