Paper Abstract

A longitudinal multimode model based on rate equations has been developed for the simulation of Er doped LiNbO3 waveguide lasers in dynamical regime. The model takes into account the time evolution of the population inversion, the transversal and longitudinal saturation effects due to signal and pump power, the dopant and field profile and the spatial hole burning in transversal waveguide section. The model has been applied for Q-switching simulations. Results about pulse peak power and width, spectral width and signal evolution with different coupled pump power and loss modulation frequency are reported.
