Paper Abstract

Highly phosphorus doped (7 - 17 mol%) single-mode fibers for the application in Raman laser have been manufactured. It has been established that with increasing the P2O5 concentration level, both optical losses and the fiber Raman gain coefficient increase. Using the fiber technology developed, the maximum efficiency of a single-cascaded Raman laser is achieved at a phosphorous pentoxide doping level of 12 - 14 mol% P2O5.
