    We report on tubular cladding optical waveguides fabricated in Neodymium doped Wollastonite- Tricalcium Phosphate glass in the eutectic composition. The glass samples were prepared by melting the eutectic powder mixture in a Pt-Rh crucible at 1600 °C and pouring it in a preheated brass mould....

    A new calorimetric interferometry using a pulsed high power Nd-glass laser was developed to determine small absorption coefficients of the order of 10-3 cm-1 or less at the wavelength of 1.06 μm. The absorption coefficients of the liquid specimens, C6H6, C6H5Cl, 0-C6H4Cl2, and 1,2,4-C6H3Cl3,...

    The possibility of using the thermally activated optical absorption bands for a resonant pump in the emitting level of highly doped Nd laser materials is discussed. This potential is demonstrated by the continuous wave 1064 nm laser emission under 885 nm pump in concentrated (up to 6.8 at. %)...

    This work demonstrates that a holmium doped chalcogenide glass waveguide can be fabricated by ultralow dose swift ion implantation method. More than three modes exist in the waveguide at the wavelength of 632.8 nm and the refractive index profile is reconstructed. The near-field pattern of the...

    Symmetric buried waveguides were fabricated in neodymium-doped KGd(WO) by using femtosecond laser writing in the low-frequency regime. Due to stress-induced index changes in the regions surrounding the focal spot, mode guidance was demonstrated and low propagation losses of ∼0.2 dB/cm were...
