Abstract

In this Letter, we present a high-pulse energy (>10 μJ) Raman laser at 1946 nm wavelength directly pumped with a 1533 nm custom-made fiber laser. The Raman laser is based on stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) in an 8 m carbon dioxide (CO2)-filled nested anti-resonant hollow-core fiber. The low-energy phonon emission combined with the inherent SRS process along the lowloss fiber allows the generation of high-pulse energy up to 15.4 μJ at atmospheric CO2 pressure. The Raman laser exhibits good long-term stability and low relative intensity noise of less than 4%. We also investigate the pressure-dependent overlap of the Raman laser line with the absorption band of CO2 at the 2 μm spectral range. Our results constitute a novel, to the best of our knowledge, and promising technology towards high-energy 2 μm lasers.
