Paper Abstract

The modeling and design of fiber lasers is an essential element of their development process. One of the areas of particular interest during the last years is the development of lanthanide ion-doped fiber lasers which operate at wavelengths exceeding 2000 nm. There are two main host glass materials developed for this purpose: fluoride and chalcogenide. One of the main specific aims of this contribution is therefore to comparatively study the properties of various numerical algorithms applicable to the design and modeling of fiber lasers operating at wavelengths exceeding 2000 nm. Hence, the convergence properties of selected algorithms implemented within various software environments are studied with a particular focus on the CPU time and calculation residual.
