Paper Abstract

In this work we focus on an analysis and a comparison of different, both multi-photon and multi-ion excitation mechanisms which can be used for pumping of a short wavelength neodymium doped ZBLAN fiber laser. Spectroscopic properties of Nd:ZBLAN examined under various excitation conditions enabled identification of the involved processes. Rate equation based models have been developed and employed to compare the efficiency of main excitation schemes, giving a good starting point for further optimization and development of Nd:ZBLAN up-conversion fiber laser.
