Holmium Advanced Laser Systems – a Better Choice for Q-switched Operations than Thulium Fiber Laser

Trivalent rare earth ions Tm3+ and Ho3+ show extraordinary performance results for the high power continuous wave and pulsed laser operation in 2 µ wavelength range. Thulium fiber laser is, in general, better for CW operations, when holmium laser is preferred for pulsed and q-switched lasers operations because of its high gain. However, holmium can...
