Use of the evaluation kit

The evaluation kit PSFL1030 allows the realization of different picosecond fiber laser configurations at 1030 nm wavelength using a saturable absorber mirror (SAM) as nonlinear optical device for passively mode-locking and standard fibers in the laser cavity. The active fiber is Yb doped. The fiber laser design can be changed easily to study the influence of certain elements on the laser output signal.
The discussion of experimental results supports the understanding of important phenomena in a passive mode-locked Yb-doped fiber laser. The user gets the needed knowledge to construct its own ps fiber laser setup at 1030 nm.

The following fiber laser configurations can be realized using the evaluation kit PSFL1030:

  • Passive mode-locked ps fiber laser with a saturable absorber mirror (SAM)
  • Use of a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) as output coupler
  • ps oscillator + fiber amplifier combination
  • Continuous wave fiber laser at 1030 nm wavelength
  • Amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) broadband emitter.

Parts of the evaluation kit PSFL1030:

The evaluation kit contains all components to build and run a picosecond fiber laser at 1030 nm wavelength including the 980 nm pump laser diode and the laser diode controller.

To measure the laser output parameters besides the evaluation kit PSFL1030 the following additional equipment is needed for the proposed laser experiments:

  • Optical power meter to measure the average laser output power
  • Fast photo diode to trace the time dependent laser output signal
  • Oscilloscope 200 MHz for measurement the photodiode output signal
  • Optional: OSA (Optical Spectrum Analyzer) to measure the spectral intensity
  • Optional: Autocorrelator for pulse duration measurements
