Paper Abstract

Silica-hafnia glass-ceramics waveguides activated by Er3+ ions were fabricated by sol-gel route. X ray diffraction and optical spectroscopy showed that after an adapted heat treatment, the resulting materials showed a crystalline environment. Analysis of the luminescence properties has demonstrated that erbium ions are, at least partially, trapped in a crystalline phase. Losses measurements at different wavelength highlight a very low attenuation coefficient indicating that this nanostructured material is suitable for a single band waveguide amplifier in the C band of telecommunication.
