Abstract

We demonstrate a widely tunable Q-switched dual-wavelength fiber laser emitting synchronized pulses in the 2 μm spectral range. Owing to the use of a Tm-doped rod-type fully aperiodic large pitch fiber, together with an acousto-optic modulator and two volume Bragg gratings (VBGs), the wavelength separation was shown to be continuously tunable from 1 to 120 nm (0.110THz). A peak power higher than 8 kW was demonstrated over the whole tuning range for a repetition rate (RR) of 1 KHz and a 26 ns pulse duration. The RR was modulated from 1 to 30 kHz, and the laser pulse duration measured between 23 ns and 130 ns, depending on the RR and the wavelength separation.
