Paper Abstract

In this paper, we discuss various experimental advantages which are gained by using samples which have special dimensions and/or geometries. We limit our discussion here to the cylindrical geometry appropriate for optical fibers which are employed for various optoelectronic applications. We present results of laser spectroscopic studies of nominally pure and activated single crystal and glass fibers to illustrate some of these advantages. For example, we have succeeded for the first time in obtaining the dependence of the ruby R-lines and of the Raman spectra of sapphire on tensile stress. We further discuss a novel laser spectroscopic method, Dilution Narrowed Laser Spectroscopy or DNLS; we demonstrate this form of spectroscopy on single mode glass fibers activated with rare earth ions and consider the possibilities inherent in this technique.
