    Abstract. Third-harmonic generation in a hollow glass fiber has been demonstrated. Ti:sapphire laser pulses 100 fs with a moderate intensity of around 1 x 10[sup 14]W/cm[sup 2] are introduced into a 1.8-cm hollow fiber in room air. From the observation of the third-harmonic beam quality and...

    simple Dy-doped chalcogenide glass fibre laser design for mid-infrared light generation is studied using a one dimensional rate equation model. The fibre laser design employs the concept of cascade lasing. The results obtained demonstrate that efficient cascade lasing may be achieved in practice...

    Since their initial development, fibre metal laminates (FMLs) have slowly started to be used by industry, particularly the aerospace sector. One of the reasons for the relatively slow adoption of FMLs is due to the difficulties faced in shaping them to the desired geometry. Whilst traditional...

    High-gain-per-unit-length, Er: Yb co-doped, phosphate glass fibers are a new class of active photonic materials. Due to their high concentration of active ions (typically 2–6×1020 cm-3), the generation of heat in these materials is rather severe. To facilitate the design of...
