Energy level calculations for rare-earth doped fluoride glasses


Summary form only given. Rare-earth doped glasses are used for many applications such as glass and fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. In the field of active fiber applications, fluoride fibers are of special interest, because most optical transitions in the rich energy level system of rare-earth ions cannot be used in usual silica fibers. Because of their… (More)
