Spectroscopy of yttria-alumina-silica glass doped with thulium and erbium

By P. Jander and W.S. Brocklesby

Abstract

Yttria-alumina-silica (YAS) glasses doped with Er3+ and Tm3+ have been examined spectroscopically for their prospect as fibre amplifier gain media for optical telecommunication systems. Absorption and emission spectra, as well as emission lifetime measurements and Judd-Ofelt calculations are reported. Tm3+:YAS glass has a emission bandwidth of 122nm around 1470nm, making it promising for S+ band amplification
