Defect production in silica fibers doped with Tm3+
Optics Letters, 18, (24), . (doi:10.1364/OL.18.002105).
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.
