Upconversion fiber lasers operating in the visible and ultraviolet

D. S. Funk, J. G. Eden

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Characteristics of the short wavelength (green → UV) upconversion fiber lasers are reviewed with emphasis on the Nd3+ ( 381 nm and 412 nm ) and Ho3+ ( 549 inn) transitions. Improved performance ofthe green Ho3+:ZBLAN upconversion, including threshold incident pump powers < 15 mW for the pump wavelength range 641645 nm, is discussed.
