Abstract

We are reporting on the characterization of a thulium-doped fiber laser applying new powder technology in the mode-locking regime. A high average output power of 185 mW at a repetition rate of 9 MHz was achieved directly from the oscillator, which resulted in 21 nJ of pulse energy. The single-pulse operation regime was confirmed by careful numerical modeling of the laser cavity.
