Abstract

We experimentally demonstrated a stable, high-average-power, continuous-wave (CW) passively mode-locked Er3+-doped ZBLAN fiber laser at 2.8 μm based on a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror. A stable mode-locked laser with a signal-to-noise ratio of 52 dB and a slope efficiency of 14% was obtained. The highest average output power in excess of 1 W was generated at the incident pump power of 8.2 W, with a pulse repetition rate of 22.56 MHz and pulse duration of 25 ps. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest average output power of a CW mode-locked ZBLAN fiber laser in the mid-infrared wavelength regime up to now.
