Abstract

The fluorescence enhancement in broadband Cr-doped fibers (CDFs) fabricated by a drawing tower with a redrawn powder-in-tube preform is proposed and demonstrated. The CDFs after heat treatment exhibited Cr4+ emission enhancement with spectral density of 200 pW/nm, verified by the formation of α-Mg2SiO4 nanocrystalline structures in the core of CDFs. The high fluorescence achievement in the CDFs is essential to develop a broadband CDF amplifier for next-generation optical communication systems.
