Phosphate glass fibres with composition 50P(2)O(5)-30CaO-9Na(2)O-3SiO(2)-3MgO-(5-x)K(2)O-xTiO(2)mol.% (x=0, 2.5, 5, respectively coded as TiPS(0), TiPS(2.5) and TiPS(5)) were drawn following the preform drawing approach. A 20-day solubility test in bi-distilled water was carried out on glass fibres with different compositions and diameters ranging between(More)
A three-core tellurite glass fiber having different combinations of rare earth oxide dopants in each core has been fabricated using shaped die-extrusion. Three cores, doped with Ho(3+)-Tm(3+)-Yb(3+), Er(3+)-Ce(3+), and Tm(3+)-Yb(3+) respectively, exhibited visible upconversion (blue, green and red) and infrared emissions at 1.4 microm, 1.5 microm, 1.9(More)
In this paper, highly (up to 5.25 mol% Er2O3) Er-doped phosphate bulk glasses were synthesized by conventional melt-quenching method and their physical, thermal and spectroscopic properties are reported. The influence of Er doping concentration on emission spectra and lifetimes was investigated in order to study the concentration quenching effect on(More)
Laser emission in the range of 1.88-1.99 micrim from a Tm3+ -doped tellurite fiber is demonstrated when pumped with a diode-pumped Er3+/Yb3+-doped silica fiber laser operating at 1.57-1.61 microm. This pump source excites the Tm3+ ions directly into the F43 upper laser level and yields an output power of 280 mW with a slope efficiency of 76% in a 99%-12%(More)
We report on the fabrication and optical assessment of an all-solid tellurite-glass photonic bandgap fiber. The manufacturing process via a preform drawing approach and the fiber characterization procedures are described and discussed. The fiber exhibits some minor morphological deformations that do not prevent the observation of optical confinement within(More)
Novel bone glass fibre scaffolds were developed by thermally bonding phosphate glass fibres belonging to the P2O5-CaO-Na2O-SiO2-MgO-K2O-TiO2 system (TiPS2.5 glass). Scaffolds with fibres of 85 or 110μm diameter were fabricated, showing compressive strength in the range of 2-3.5MPa, comparable to that of the trabecular bone. The effect of different thermal(More)
The design and fabrication of a tellurite glass multimode optical fiber for magneto-optical applications are presented and discussed. The analysis of the polarization shows that an optical beam, linearly polarized at the fiber input, changes to elliptically polarized with an ellipticity of 1∶4.5 after propagating down the fiber. However, the elliptical(More)
Two tellurite glass compositions in the TeO<sub>2</sub>-ZnO-NaO system were synthesised and their suitability as a fibre core/clad material pair was investigated through the analysis of their thermal and rheological properties and their refractive indices. The fibre preform was manufactured by extrusion technique which allowed us to produce a triple core(More)
We report recent developments on rare-earth ion doped heavy metal-oxide glass fibres for engineering lasers and amplifiers, operating in the optical communication window. Special emphasis on rare-earth ion co-doping schemes for controlling the pump excited state absorption process, which is dominant in the single mode fibre geometry, is explained by(More)
