Abstract

A new route was recently proposed to modify some spectroscopic properties of rare-earth ions in silica-based fibers. We had shown the incorporation of erbium ions in amorphous dielectric nanoparticles, grown in fiber preforms. Here we present the achieved stabilization of nanometric erbium-doped dielectric nanoparticles within the core of silica fibers. We present the nanoparticle dimensional characterization in fiber samples. We also show the spectroscopic characterization of erbium in preform samples with similar nanoparticle size and composition. This new route could have important potentials in improving rare-earth-doped fiber amplifiers and laser sources.
