Abstract
Recent progress in our work on the development of three micron class dysprosium-doped ZBLAN fiber lasers will be presented. Of particular note is the achievement of 51% slope efficiency which to our knowledge represents a record for all 3 micron class fiber lasers. This result is obtained for an in-band pumping scheme which also allowed for demonstration of continuous tuning over a range of 400nm with an extreme emission wavelength of 3.35 microns.
