Abstract
We report a thulium-doped fluorozirconate fiber amplifier pumped at 785nm, with gain being observed between 800nm and 830nm. A small signal gain of 23dB was measured at 806nm. Modeling of this device suggests that a diode- pumped amplifier with 30dB gain and a 3dB bandwidth of 10nm should be feasible when using an optimized fiber. Tunable and Q-switched laser oscillation has also been demonstrated in this wavelength region.
