Abstract:
In this dissertation, the spectroscopic properties of thulium doped tellurite and thulium doped germanate glass are characterized. Absorption and emission spectra, lifetime, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), and thermo-gravimetric analysis are utilized to characterize the thulium doped tellurite bulk glass samples. Judd-Oflet theory, Fuchtbauer-ladenburg theory, Kushida's model, Burshtein's hopping model, Miyakawa's non-resonant energy transfer model are employed in ab-initio calculation of cross relaxation energy transfer. The fundamental mechanism of cross relaxation energy transfer is examined through ab-initio calculation and self-calibrating spectroscopy.Thulium doped tellurite glass microspheres are fabricated by spin casting technique. Single mode 2-mm laser is demonstrated from tellurite microsphere with high thulium doping concentration. General laser condition for self-terminating transition is discussed and concluded. Demonstration of 1.5-mm laser is achieved from a self-terminating transition of thulium doped in tellurite microsphere through a cooperative lasing technique.Highly efficient 1.9 micron fiber laser is demonstrated in thulium doped germanate fiber laser. The slope efficiency of the fiber laser is 58%, which indicates a quantum efficiency of 1.79. Single frequency laser operation at 1.9 micron has been successfully accomplished. A fiber based Fabry-Perot interferometer is utilized as a scanning filter to examine the single frequency operation. 4 W laser output has been achieved from a 40 cm long Tm-doped germanate double cladding fiber laser.
