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:
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:
