Abstract

${{\rm Ho}^{3 + }}/{{\rm Pr}^{3 + }}$ co-doped ${{\rm AlF}_3}$-based glass fibers were fabricated by using a rod-in-tube method based on the matrix glass composition of ${{\rm AlF}_3} - {{\rm BaF}_2} - {{\rm CaF}_2} - {{\rm YF}_3} - {{\rm SrF}_2} - {{\rm MgF}_2} - {\rm LiF} - {{\rm ZrF}_4} - {{\rm PbF}_2}$. Under the pump of a 1150 mW Raman fiber laser, a 2.9 µm laser was observed in a 19 cm long ${{\rm Ho}^{3 + }}/{{\rm Pr}^{3 + }}$ co-doped ${{\rm AlF}_3}$-based glass fiber with an output power of 173 mW and a slope efficiency of 10.4%. ${{\rm Ho}^{3 + }}/{{\rm Pr}^{3 + }}$ co-doped ${{\rm AlF}_3}$-based glasses were fabricated to investigate the deactivation effects of ${{\rm Pr}^{3 + }}$ ions on the ${{\rm Ho}^{3 + }}:{^5{{\rm I}}_7}$ level. Our results showed that the ${{\rm Ho}^{3 + }}/{{\rm Pr}^{3 + }}$ co-doped ${{\rm AlF}_3}$-based glass fibers are potential gain media for $\sim{2.9}\;{\unicode{x00B5}{\rm m}}$ lasers.
