Er:Ta2O5 waveguide optimization & spectroscopy
The optimization of erbium-doped Ta thin film waveguides deposited by magnetron sputtering is described. Background losses below 0.4dB/cm have been obtained before post-annealing. A broad photoluminescence spectrum centered at 1534nm is obtained, and the photoluminescence power and fluorescence lifetime increase with post-annealing, yielding promising results for compact amplifiers.

Abstract

The optimization of erbium-doped Ta thin film waveguides deposited by magnetron sputtering is described. Background losses below 0.4dB/cm have been obtained before post-annealing. A broad photoluminescence spectrum centered at 1534nm is obtained, and the photoluminescence power and fluorescence lifetime increase with post-annealing, yielding promising results for compact amplifiers.
