Upconversion fiber lasers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Upconversion presently receives much interest, mainly for the development of visible sources pumped in the near infrared. This has been realized in many crystals doped with rare-earth (RE) ions. Important objectives are obtaining room temperature cw operation and diode pumping. It is thought that optical fibers that have shown high performances in the laser domain1 can bring major improvements in the upconversion process, owing to their unique properties of light confinement over long lengths.
