Abstract
An all-fiber, diode-pumped, continuous-wave Tm3+-doped fiber laser operated at a wavelength of 1.94 μm was developed. 37.4 W of output power with a slope efficiency as high as 57% with respect to absorbed pump power at 790 nm was demonstrated. The laser output beam quality factor M2 was measured to be ~1.2. The output beam was very stable with power fluctuations <1% measured over 1 hour. The laser system is to be implemented as a scalpel for surgery of soft biological tissues.
