Defect production in silica fibers doped with Tm3+

Brocklesby, W.S., Mathieu, A., Brown, R.S. and Lincoln, J.R. (1993) Defect production in silica fibers doped with Tm3+ Optics Letters, 18, (24), pp. 2105-2108. (doi:10.1364/OL.18.002105).

Record type: Article


Irradiation of Tm3+ fibers with blue light at 476 nm induces a broad-bandwidth loss in these fibers. We have measured the spectral dependence of the loss for both silica-germania and silica-alumina fibers and show through micro-Raman studies of the core regions of the fibers that this induced loss is correlated with the production of structural defects in the glass host.
