The ED-LASE kit allows detailed investigation of laser performance, output characteristics and dynamic response using a series of fibre ring lasers formed using an erbium doped fibre laser gain medium with feedback provided by various fused fibre couplers.
- EDF ring laser construction
- Measurement of power / pump characteristic
- Gain medium characterisation
- Slope efficiency & lasing threshold
- Effect of intra-cavity loss
- Influence of output transmission ratio
- Laser dynamics – relaxation oscillations, excitation lifetime, laser onset time
