Effect of heat and H2 gas on the photo-darkening of Yb+3 fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Heating a photo-darkened Ytterbium fiber causes a recovery in spectral transmission to the pre-darkened state. Exposure to H2 at high temperatures causes a permanent change in the visible transmission identical to that caused by photo-darkening.
