    Energy transfer coefficients in thulium-doped silica fibers are key parameters for a reliable numerical modeling and optimization of high-power fiber lasers pumped at 790 nm and emitting around eye-safer wavelength of 2 mu m. We report on determination of the energy transfer coefficients by comparing experimental values and rate-equation-based modeling of thulium fluorescence decays. The study was performed using two pump, 792 nm and 1620 nm, and two signal, 800 nm and 2 mu m, wavelengths. The following values were obtained k(3011) = (1.9 +/- 0.2) x 10(-22 )m(3 )S(-1),( ) k(1130) = (1.4 +/- 0.2) x 10(-23) m(3) S-1 and k(1120) = (3.5 +/- 0.1) x 10(-23) m(3) s(-1). To the best of our knowledge, this study involves so far the most comprehensive comparison of various fluorescence decays in terms of excitation and detection wavelengths as well as excitation powers
