Paper Abstract

PbS-quantum dot-doped glasses have been demonstrated as saturable absorber Q-switches for 2-pm holmium lasers. Q-switched pulses of 50 ns in duration, 2.4 mJ in energy from a Cr,Tm,Ho:Y3Sc2A13012 laser at 2092 nm and Q-switched pulses with 70 ns in duration, 4.5 mJ in energy from a Cr,Tm,Ho:Y3A15012 laser at 2097 nm are obtained.
