A solution-processable erbium-ytterbium codoped complex is synthesized. The absorption and photoluminescence spectra of the complex are observed. The full width at half maximum of the emission spectrum is 80 nm around 1530 nm. A structure of embedded waveguide with the complex as core layer is designed. With an input signal power of 0.3 mW, an optical gain of 5.2 dB at a wavelength of 1550 nm is obtained in a 15-mm-long waveguide when the cladding layer is SU-8. When the cladding layer is polymethyl methacrylate, an optical gain of 6.5 dB is obtained in a 12-mm-long waveguide with an input signal power of 1 mW.

    A definition of the term "absorption spectrum" is presented. It refers to the pattern of dark lines and colors made when light passes through an absorbing medium. The dark lines represent the colors that are absorbed. Because each type of atom absorbs a unique range of colors, the absorption...

    In many investigations of tropospheric chemistry information about the two dimensional distribution of trace gases on a small scale (e.g. tens to hundreds of metres) is highly desirable. An airborne instrument based on imaging Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy has been built to map...
