New glasses which exhibit a broadband Raman spectral response have been prepared and characterised for their Raman cross section and gain performance. Results on three different glass compositions in the system [(100-x)NaPO 3 -xNa 2 B 4 O 7 ]:TiO 2 /Nb 2 O 5 =1 are summarised. The impact on the Raman properties of changing the phosphorus to boron ratio while maintaining the TiO 2 /Nb 2 O 5 molar ratio equal to one, was examined. Polarised spontaneous Raman measurements are presented, and a… CONTINUE READING
