Infrared-induced photodarkening in Tm-doped fluoride fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We have observed a new type of infrared-induced photodarkening in high-numerical-aperture fluoride fibers doped with 3000 and 10,000 parts in 106 by weight of Tm. The loss induced in the visible region by 1140-nm radiation is very strong (as high as 25 dB in a 50-cm piece) and broadband; it can be removed by irradiation with the same pump wavelength at lower powers.
