Abstract

Lasing at 381 nm (4D3/2 - 4I9/2) and at 412 nm (2P3/2 - 4I9/2) has been observed in a Nd3+- doped ZBLAN fiber at room temperature with a single pump laser operating in the 580 to 600 nm wavelength region. The output power, excitation spectrum, line width, and temporal behavior of the laser are discussed.
