Special fibres have been fabricated to demonstrate the potential of using multicomponent glass materials for sensors, devices and fibre lasers. High nonlinearity and large Verdet constants are confirmed for lead-silicate glass fibres. Nonlinear effects such as second harmonic generation (SHG), third harmonic generation (THG), electro-optic (EO) Kerr effect and optical switching are observed for F7 core glass fibres. Compound glasses are investigated as host glasses for fibre lasers and amplifiers. An all glass cladding pumped Nd-doped fibre laser from compound glasses is characterized.
