Properties of a new rare-earth doped heavy metal oxide containing silicate glass are presented. The glass has potential for fabrication of ultra-short wideband fiber and planar waveguide amplifiers. We report specific results for a fiber amplifier geometry, discussing achieved improvements in device compactness (Giles gain g* = 210 dB/m allowing up to 100 times shorter fiber) and amplification bandwidth (50% more bandwidth in C-/L-band) compared to the conventional EDFA. We also access the potential of this material for fabrication of active planar integrated waveguide devices.
