Paper Abstract

The variable stripe length (VSL) is a convenient method for the measurement of optical gain. However, several inherent experimental constraints such as pump beam non-uniformity, diffraction from the movable cache and sample edges, and gain saturation challenge its proper implementation. A modified VSL configuration, which addresses these constraints, has been developed and implemented for gain measurements in SiO2 structures containing silicon nanocrystals. A microprocessor based acquisition of several control parameters provides reliable and reproducible optical gain measurements.
