Abstract

Excited-state absorption (ESA) in various bismuth-doped fibers (BDFs) was investigated. No significant ESA in IR emission bands of Bi-doped germanosilicate and phosphosilicate fibers was found. Considerable ESA was observed in Bi-doped aluminosilicate fibers at 800–1700 nm. The ESA spectra of the aluminosilicate BDFs with different bismuth concentration were measured at room and 77 K temperature. Significant dependence of the ESA on the bismuth concentration and the fiber temperature was found.
