Wang, J., Reekie, L., Brocklesby, W.S., Chow, Y.T. and Payne, D.N. (1995) Fabrication, spectroscopy and laser performance of Nd3+-doped single-mode lead-silicate glass-fibres Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, 180, (2-3), pp. 207-217. (doi:10.1016/0022-3093(94)00474-9).

Record type: Article


The fabrication of a highly efficient Nd3+-doped single-mode fiber laser operating at 1.06km is described. The Nd3+ is introduced by doping Nd2O3 into a multicomponent (flint) lead-silicate glass host, Schott commercial optical glass FV. A fabrication technique for doping rare-earth evenly into commercial optical glasses is demonstrated. Spectroscopic properties relevant to laser operation in the Nd3+-doped lead-silicate glass fibers were measured and the influence of Pb2+ ions on the spectral properties was analyzed. Owing to the long lifetime and large absorption and emission cross-sections of Nd3+ in this lead-silicate glass host, a high-performance Nd3+-doped lead-silicate fibre laser device operating at 1.06µm has been successfully demonstrated.
