Novel glasses for optical-fibre device applications.
In, 9th International Symposium on Non-Oxide Glasses (Halide Glasses), Hangzhou, CN,
24 - 28 May 1994.
This paper reviews current research activities on novel multicomponent (soft) glasses for optical-fibre devices, underway at the Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton. Compound glasses are crucial for a variety of important optical-fibre devices, including 1.3µm optical fibre amplifiers, up-conversion UV and visible fibre lasers, long-wavelength and high-power fibre lasers. Recent results and progress on silicate, phosphate, germanate, tellurite, fluoride, sulphide and chloride glasses and fibres are presented, together with device performance and application.
