Paper Abstract

Using the rode-in-rode, the tapered-elongation and the jacking-drawing technique, a single-mode phosphate glass fiber with a core diameter of 8 micrometers was fabricated. Laser properties of the fiber were measured using a Fabry-Perot cavity. Single-mode Nd3+-doped phosphate glass fiber was pumped by a laser diode of 800 nm at the room temperature. Laser emission centered at the wavelength of 1.053 micrometers was observed, and a 1.053 micrometers CW laser with output power of 8.36 mw and slope efficiency of 30.6% were obtained.
