Paper Abstract

In this paper, we report second harmonic generation in a tunable/Q-switch Nd3+-doped fiber laser using a LiNbO3-integrated optics device. The component is a low-voltage asymmetric Mach-Zehnder Interferometer. Laser emission occurs simultaneously at two wavelengths (lambda) 0 equals 1088 nm et (lambda) 2 equals 544 nm. As a driving voltage is applied to the LiNbO3 component, the lasing wavelengths are tuned by mode hopping. We demonstrate a Q-switch mode operating of that laser.
