Abstract

There is currently considerable interest in lasers based on the fiber waveguide geometry, and crystal fiber Nd:YAG lasers are now commercially available. We recently developed a new fiber laser technology based on doped glass which offers both a choice of dopant ions and the possibility of wavelength tunability. The Er3+-doped fiber laser is particularly interesting because its operational wavelength of 1.55µm coincides with the lowest loss region of silica optical fibres. Furthermore, the fiber can be used as a high-gain optical amplifier, which is compatible with quaternary (InGaAsP) devices
