Paper Abstract

Composite rare-earth-doped glass waveguides are studied. Their modal behavior is examined theoretically using a finite-difference method. Measured fluorescence spectrum is presented and a glass waveguide amplifier with more than 6 dB amplification at 1.557 micrometers wavelength is demonstrated.
