Abstract

Self-induced phase modulation in erbium-doped polycrystalline Y2O3 integrated-optic waveguides is studied by use of a Mach–Zehnder interferometric setup. We determined the wavelength dispersion of the nonlinear refractive index near the 4F9/2 absorption band and show that it corresponds qualitatively with a Kramers–Krönig analysis. The nonlinear coefficient at 670 nm was determined to be 1.4 × 10−14 m2/W and has an electronic origin with a slow relaxation time of 6 ms.
