Abstract

We report on a broadly tunable diode-pumped femtosecond Tm:LuScO3 laser source around 2.06 µm. Tuning was obtained through the use of a steeply diving birefringent filter, maintaining sub-600 fs pulses over a tuning range of 2019–2110 nm. The minimum pulse duration of 240 fs was recorded at a central wavelength of 2080 nm with an average output power of 93 mW. Higher output coupling of 2% resulted in a narrower tuning range of 2070–2102 nm with generated pulses as short as 435 fs and an average output power of 119 mW at 2090 nm.

Fig. 2 (a) Modelled transmission curves for the first four orders of the SD-BRF at different angles α. A zoomed in view detailing the 99% transmission is shown in (b). (c) Change in transmission wavelength for the 1st order over various α.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Schematic of the z-fold six-mirror cavity used to demonstrate broad tunability around 2.06 µm from the Tm:LuScO3 laser. When operating in the mode-locked regime, the HR mirror was replaced with a SESAM. Details of the pump source and optics used can be found in [24].
