Abstract:The development of efficient, high-brightness sources near 0.9 mum has not been successful to date. Optical fibers doped with neodymium offer a promising approach to the realization of this wavelength region. This thesis investigates the feasibility of using the 4F3/2 → 4I9/2 transition in Nd-doped oxide glass fibers both theoretically and experimentally. Parasitics such as amplified spontaneous emission and stimulated Brillouin scattering are also investigated to determine the limitations to this approach.
