Abstract

An adaptive simulated annealing optimization algorthm is used to derive laser rate equation and wavegurding models with which the best design for a diode-pumped fiber-coupled, Yb. Er glass waveguide laser can be determined. Material parameters that correspond to commercially available laser-glass and diode-pump sources are used in this study. Given a continuous-wave 300-mW pump at 977 nm, approximately 48 mW of power at 1540 nm can be coupled into the LP01 mode of an optical fiber . Fabrication and alignment tolerance analyses are presented.
