Paper Abstract

Tellurite glasses doped with Er3+ and Tm3+ are investigated for broadband amplifiers in the third telecommunications window. Fluorescence spectra and lifetimes of Er3+ and Tm3+ in tellurite glass were measured. Stimulated emission cross-sections were calculated using the McCumber method for Er3+ and the Judd-Ofelt analysis for Tm3+. The obtained emission parameters are compared with those in other glass hosts. The potential advantages of tellurite glass as amplifier host are discussed.
