Yb³⁺-doped large core silica fiber for fiber laser prepared by glass phase-separation technology.


We report on the preparation and optical characteristics of an Yb(3+)-doped large core silica fiber with the active core prepared from nanoporous silica rod by the glass phase-separation technology. The measurements show that the fiber has an Yb(3+) concentration of 9811 ppm by weight, a low background attenuation of 0.02 dB/m, and absorption from Yb(3+) about 5.5 dB/m at 976 nm. The laser performance presents a high slope efficiency of 72.8% for laser emission at 1071 nm and a low laser threshold of 3 W within only 2.3 m fiber length. It is suggested that the glass phase-separation technology shows great potential for realizing active fibers with larger core and complex fiber designs.
