Paper Abstract

Integrated optical lasers and amplifiers are attracting large attention for their use in optical sensing as well in optical communication systems. Here we present preliminary results on the characterisation of optical waveguides fabricated in Er- doped phosphate glasses either by ion-exchange or by pulsed laser deposition. It is shown that spectroscopic features of the waveguides are fully suitable to the implementation of active guided-wave devices.
