Description/Abstract

Optically-pumped lasers and amplifiers can in principle benefit greatly from a guided-wave geometry in which the pump and lasing modes overlap tightly, the laser mode volume is minimized, and the product of optical intensity and interaction length is not limited by diffraction as in a bulk gain medium. This idea is most successfully embodied in the erbium-doped silica fibre amplifier, and many novel and efficient laser systems have been demonstrated in glass fibre form.
