Abstract

A tellurium-doped germanosilicate optical fiber was developed by modified chemical vapor deposition and solution doping techniques. Using the continuous-wave self-phase modulation method, the nonresonant nonlinear refractive index, n2, was measured to be 5.52×1020m2/W, which is 2 to 3 times that of the undoped germanosilicate glass fiber. Polyhedron structures TeO3 and TeO4 with GeO4 and SiO4 are believed responsible for lower phonon energy, more nonbridging oxygens, and a larger hyperpolarization, leading to the observed higher nonresonant optical nonlinearity.
