Summary form only given. Rare-earth-doped fiber lasers are attractive for microscopy and imaging applications and have developed over the past decades rapidly. They are unable to cover near-infra-red region entirely and therefore Raman and parametric process are promising for producing new wavelengths which are out of emission band of the current fiber lasers. Here, we demonstrate a synchronously-pumped Raman laser system for producing coherent signals spanning from 1.06 μm to 1.35 μm. The laser system comprises a passively-mode-locked oscillator, two stages of amplifier and a phosphosilicate Raman oscillator. The schematic of experimental setup is shown in Fig. 1(a). A mode locked oscillator operating at 37 MHz is using as a seed source. The output pulse duration and central wavelength are 6 ps and 1065 nm, respectively. 6 mW output from oscillator is launched to pre amplifier comprises 85-cm long Yb 401-PM pumped by a single mode diode through a PM wavelength division multiplexer (WDM). The power amplifier consists of a 3.5-m long Yb 1200-DC-PM with 6 μm core diameter and 125 μm cladding diameter pumped by a temperature stabilized, high power multimode diode laser via a multimode pump-signal combiner (MPC). A 30/70 coupler is employed for delivering pump signal at 1060 nm to the Raman oscillator comprises 4.2-m long ph-doped fiber. To synchronize pump and Raman and achieve coherent pulses, we adjust the length of cavity by a precise translation stage. By using proper filter inside the Raman cavity, different wavelengths are achieved.
