An emission band with a maximum at 1430 nm and a FWHM of 100 nm was observed in a Bi-doped fiber under core-pumping in the 1340–1370 nm wavelength range. Net gain in 1430–1490 nm and laser action in 1443-1459 nm wavelength range in the Bi-doped aluminosilicate fiber have been demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge.
