Ion-Exchanged Waveguides in Erbium-Doped Phosphate Glasses
Glass lasers have been produced since very long exploiting the good optical properties of glass matrices incorporating rare-earth ions; their characteristics have since then been thoroughly investigated in order to optimise their properties.1,2
