Efficient emission at 1.38 mum wavelength from holmium (Ho(3+))-doped low-phonon-energy gallate bismuth lead (GBL) oxide glasses, owing to the Ho(3+): ((5)S(2),(5)F(4))-->(5)I(5) transition, was observed, and the stimulated emission cross section was calculated to be 2.4x10(-21) cm(2). Population inversions between the ((5)S(2),(5)F(4)) and (5)I(5) levels have been achieved, and a broad gain bandwidth from 1350 to 1450 nm was obtained. The large product of emission cross section and measured… CONTINUE READING
