Abstract
We report a high power, single frequency, linearly polarized master oscillator power amplifier emitting 110 ns, 1 kW peak power pulses at 2050 nm. A 20 % slope efficiency and a beam quality of M2 = 1.2 are achieved with a three stages double clad Tm3+-doped fiber architecture. Various pump schemes are compared leading to the conclusion that 793 nm pump wavelength is the most efficient for amplification at 2050 nm. Based on a numerical simulations, the Brillouin gain coefficient around 2 μm in Tm3+ highly doped silica fiber is estimated to 1.2x10-11 m/W. Output peak power is limited by Stimulated Brillouin scattering to 535 W without mitigation and to 1 kW with application of a strain distribution along the doped fiber.
