The use of transition metal ions to obtain broadband emission and widely tuneable lasers is widely known. In particular, the incorporation of such ions into crystalline hosts has resulted in a wide number of lasers covering the spectral region from ~750nm to ~3µm. The use of metal ions in glass hosts for laser applications has however been limited to the rare-earth ions and therefore to spectrally narrow regions in which gain can be achieved. The ability to obtain broadband emission and lasing from transition metal ions in glass hosts would enable a new generation of efficient, compact, waveguide-based devices to be developed.
