Fabrication & characterisation of Yb3+:Er3+ phosphosilicate fibres for lasers

Vienne, Guillaume G., Caplen, Julie E., Dong, Liang, Minelly, John D., Nilsson, Johan and Payne, David N. (1998) Fabrication & characterisation of Yb3+:Er3+ phosphosilicate fibres for lasers Journal of Lightwave Technology, 16, (11), pp. 1990-2001. (doi:10.1109/50.730360).

Record type: Article


Fabrication process of efficient Yb codoped fiber. We explain how we evaluate the fibers and discuss the effect of the ytterbium to erbium concentration ratio on the laser characteristics. Finally, we present results of some investigations into the mechanisms which can affect the efficiency of the lasers, and show that the detrimental up-conversion from the metastable level of the erbium ions is dramatically reduced by the presence of the ytterbium ions.
