Abstract
Tellurite glasses doped with Er3+, Tm3+ and Nd3+ are investigated for broadband amplifiers in the third telecommunications window. Fluorescence spectra and lifetimes of Er3+, Tm3+ and Nd3+ in tellurite glass were measured. Stimulated emission cross- sections were calculated using the McCumber method for Er3+ and the Judd-Ofelt analysis for Tm3+ and Nd3+. The obtained emission parameters are compared with those in other glass hosts. The potential advantages of tellurite glass as amplifier host are discussed.
