Abstract
2-μm fiber lasers have become a research topic with an increased emphasis due to a variety of applications including eye-safe LIDAR, spectroscopy, remote sensing, and mid-infrared (mid-IR) frequency generation. We review our latest development on various 2-μm fiber laser sources, including single-frequency fiber lasers, Q-switched fiber lasers, mode-locked fiber lasers, and mid-IR supercontinuum fiber sources. All these fiber laser sources are based on thulium and holmium ions using our proprietary glass fiber technology. Potential applications of these fiber laser sources for sensing are also briefly discussed.
