Abstract

Raman-fiber source emitting 1450 nm with a power of 1 W was realized. The application of the commercially available pump source with an output power of 35 W allows one to increase the output power up to 5 W. The emission wavelength corresponds to the water absorption band therefore it is promising laser for the surgery and other medical applications.
