Abstract

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.

Fig. 1

Raman spectrum of germanosilicate fiber core before and after irradiation with 476-nm light. Increases in the peak heights at 495 and 606 cm−1 are clearly visible in the postirradiation spectrum.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Natural log of the change in absorption on irradiation of a 1-m length of Tm3+-doped germanosilicate [trace (a)] and aluminosilicate [trace (b)] fibers. The two spectra are similar, indicating that the interaction between thulium and the silica host is most likely to be responsible for the defect that creates the absorption.
