Abstract
Rod-type photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) bring enormous advantages in Q-switched fiber laser with high pulse energy, short pulse width and good beam quality for its large mode area and short fiber length. In this paper, an acoustic-optic Q-switched photonic crystal fiber laser was investigated by using a 1m-long Yb-doped large mode area rod-type photonic crystal fiber as gain medium. A maximum pulse energy of 0.78 mJ (21.7 KW peak power) and the shortest pulse width of 20 ns were obtained at low repetition rates. A maximum 1033.6 nm average power of 14.5 W was demonstrated at 65 KHz with a slope efficiency of 56%. Further improvements would be obtained by optimizing the experiment configuration so as to achieve shorter pulse width and higher pulse energy.
