Abstract

Experiments have shown that it is possible to realize laser cavities photowritten within rare-earth-doped silicate fibers. Experimental results on a particular application, namely, the detection of gas traces by identification of one of the gas's absorption lines, are presented. Experiments on an absorption line of atmospheric water have been carried out to illustrate this purpose. Two lasers have been designed with particular characteristics (spectral linewidths, slope efficiencies, thresholds). Preliminary experimental results on the detection of an absorption line of atmospheric water have been obtained with fiber lasers and optoacoustic detection.
