Characterization of the Yb-doped glass Anderson localizing optical fiber (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Rare-earth-doped glass Anderson localizing optical fibers (g-ALOF) have great potential for novel power, coherence, and spectral properties as the gain medium in fiber lasers. We report on our investigation of the optical properties of Yb-doped g-ALOF near the peak absorption wavelength, especially the localization, and lasing- and gain-related parameters. These include the fluorescence lifetime, emission cross-section, absorption cross-section, saturation power, gain, scattering loss, and background absorption. We also elaborate on several new measurement techniques that were required to obtain these parameters, mainly due to the substantial structural difference between g-ALOFs and conventional fibers.
