Paper Abstract

The fabrication of different types of Er3+-doped glasses and the study of their absorption and emission spectra, cross sections, lifetimes, and bandwidths are described. The purpose is to get guidelines for the synthesis of the appropriate glasses to manufacture active planar waveguides. The feasibility of active integrated optical waveguides by ion-exchange on these glasses is also demonstrated, using an Er3--doped soda-lime glass.
