Hi-tech industrial or biotechnological laser applications request for picosecond pulsed 2-μm laser generating sub-1-J pulses in >kHz repetition range. At HiLASE center the development of the laser system with target to generate 1-J picosecond pulses with 1-kHz repetition rate has started. In this paper, we present a concept of the laser system and demonstrate recent results from the first part of the laser – the holmium fiber oscillator. The holmium fiber front-end is pumped by a continuous wave <1-W thulium fiber laser generating at wavelength of 1950-nm. Mode-locking operation in the oscillator is reached by dispersion management in the laser cavity. In this self-starting configuration we reached 45-mW of average power with repetition rate of 22.5-MHz with pulse energy of 2-nJ.
