Research into Tm3+-doped glasses as gain media for optical amplifiers in the telecommunications S-band has been focused on glasses with low phonon energy like tellurite and fluoride glasses, because the high phonon energy of silicate glasses precludes emission around 1470nm. Glasses in the Y2O3 - Al2O3 - SiO2 (YAS) system have, despite their silica content, a maximum phonon energy of about 950cm−1, as well as good transparency and thermal stability. We report preliminary spectroscopy on Tm3+:YAS glass which highlights their potential as S-band amplifier gain media.
