Paper Abstract

The positive effect of widening the 1.5 micrometers Erbium fluorescence band provided by alumina on germanosilicate core glass of active fibers is partially obtained also in magnesia silica host, but to a lesser extent, while zirconia silica fibers do not exhibit modification of the emission band. Excited state lifetimes, absorption, shape, and width of the band in different glass hosts were measured with the aim to optimize the core glass composition.
