Paper Abstract

High concentrations of the rare-earth elements erbium, holmium and thulium have been successfully doped into single crystal (SC) yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG, Y3Al5O12) fibers by use of the laser heated pedestal growth (LHPG) method. The spontaneous emission spectra and fluorescence were measured in the near-infrared (NIR). The results show progress towards forming a solid state laser able to produce a wavelength in the NIR, for high power applications.
