To date research on optical fibre lasers and amplifiers has mainly concentrated on two classes of host glass, silicates and fluorozirconates. In this paper we present results obtained from a new glass, based on lead germanate. This glass has been chosen to answer a need for a host having a maximum phonon energy intermediate between that of silica and fluorozirconate glass. The specific glass composition was also developed to be suitable for fibre fabrication. We report results of lasing on two transitions in thulium-doped lead germanate fibre. Recently this new glass has also been shown to be compatible with ion implantation techniques to produce planar waveguide lasers.
