Abstract

IR luminescence and optical gain in a Pb-doped fiber have been observed for the first time. Absorption, luminescence and pump on/pump off optical gain spectra, as well as luminescence decay time, have been measured in these fibers. Comparison of optical active center characteristics in Pb-doped and Bi-doped fibers of the same composition indicates an essential difference of optical active centers in these two types of fibers.
