Abstract

This paper presents the progress in the fields of the modelling and design of lanthanide ion-doped chalcogenide glass fiber lasers. It presents laser cavity designs that have been developed in order to optimize the performance of lanthanide ion-doped chalcogenide glass fiber lasers. Additionally, various numerical algorithms that have been applied for the optimization of chalcogenide glass lasers are reviewed and compared. The comparison shows that a combination of less accurate but more robust algorithms with more accurate ones gives the most promising performance. View Full-Text
