Abstract

The polarization-resolved emission spectra of the 4I13/24I15/2, 4I11/24I15/2, and 4S3/2+2H11/24I15/2 transitions have been measured in situ on an Er:Ti:LiNbO3 waveguide and used to determine the polarization-resolved emission and absorption cross-section distributions of these transitions. The significant differences caused by the Er3+-ion anisotropic environment may have important implications for optimizing Er:LiNbO3 integrated devices.
