Abstract : A room temperature laser system for producing a CW laser emission at substantially 2.7 micros is disclosed. In a preferred embodiment, the laser system comprises a laser diode source for producing a CW pump beam at a preselected wavelength; and a fiber laser doped with erbium activator ions to produce an output CW laser emission at a wavelength in the range of 2.71 - 2.78 microns when the fiber laser is pumped by the CW pump beam. Keywords: Patent applications. (jhd)
