Abstract

The production of competitive fibre amplifiers in the 1.3µm region requires both good quantum efficiency in the lasing ion and the capability to produce low-loss fibers. Alkali metal halide substituted gallium lanthanum sulphide (GLS) doped with Pr3+ may provide a route to both. We describe measurements of the optical spectroscopy and radiative quantum efficiency (RQE) of Pr3+ emission at 1.3µm from the 1G4 - 3H5 transition in GLS glass containing CsCl, CsI and RbCl. The results indicate that CsCl-containing GLS glasses. which have better thermal and glass-forming properties than pure GLS, can show quantum efficiencies of up to ~80% of that of pure GLS and thus are good candidates for 1.3µm fiber amplifiers.
