    Stanford Team Develops Self-Cooling Silica Fiber Laser

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A Stanford University research team developed a self-cooling laser based on a silica fiber architecture. By overcoming the need for external cooling, such as with a water-based cooling system, the design charts a course for future laser-based devices capable of delivering exceptional purity and frequency stability.

    Applications for a self-cooling laser constructed from a silica laser fiber include the creation of advanced fiber amplifiers — useful in the all-optical transportation of information over long distances — and low-power, high-precision metrology.

    After repeated tests with the goal of successfully cooling a silica fiber when pumping it with laser light, Stanford University electrical engineering graduate…
