Dr. Andy Gillooly will be presenting at Photonics West 2017. Andy will feature in the third session: Rare-Earth Doped Materials.
Paper: Yb-doped Polarizing Fiber
Paper #: 10100-13
Date: Monday 30th January 2017
Time: 4:40 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Room 256 (South Mezzanine)
A ytterbium doped polarizing fiber is demonstrated. The fiber offers the opportunity to build single polarization, all-fiber, fiber lasers without the need for free-space polarizing components. We report how the fiber has been achieved by combining Bow-Tie PM fiber using modified chemical vapor deposition (MCVD) with rare-earth solution doping technology. The fiber has a single-polarization window of 50nm centered at the 1060nm and a PER of >30dB. The PER as a function of power has been characterized and shows good stability over a wide range. In a lasing configuration an optical conversion efficiency of ~75% was achieved.
