Paper Abstract

The Tm-doped silicate glass fibre laser that operates in the 2 micron region of the spectrum is fast becoming a mature technology with output powers already exceeding 1 kW. In this paper, I will review a number of current and future experiments that involve lasers pumped with the output from Tm-doped silicate glass fibre lasers including linear systems e.g., the optical excitation of rare earth ions and nonlinear systems e.g., Raman fibre lasers.
