Paper Abstract

In this work we present analysis and comparison of two basic operating schemes for praseodymium-doped up-conversion fiber laser. Single and double wavelength pumped systems were considered, taking into account pumping efficiency and pump power required for population inversion build-up. Time-dependent rate equation models have been developed for single and double doped systems, which allow detailed discussion and optimization of pumping parameters. Performed initial numerical simulations confirm usefulness of model for purposes of up-conversion fiber lasers analysis and design.
