Abstract:

High concentrations of the rare-earth elements erbium, holmium and thulium have been successfully doped into single crystal SC yttrium aluminum garnet YAG, Y3Al5O12 fibers by use of the laser heated pedestal growth LHPG method. The spontaneous emission spectra and fluorescence were measured in the near-infrared NIR. The results show progress towards forming a solid state laser able to produce a wavelength in the NIR, for high power applications
