Paper Abstract

Lasers operating around 2.0 jm have several remote sensing applications including wind velocity, water vapor and green house gasses. An attractive approach to 2.0 m lasers has a Tm:glass fiber laser pumping a Ho:YAG laser, thereby avoiding problems that are associated with the Ho:Tm up conversion process. Toward this end, both Tm:silica and Tm:ZBLAN fiber lasers are evaluated as well as a Tm laser pumped Ho:YAG. Performance of these devices is reported.
