Detailed treatments of the theory for the case of rare earth ions, including its successes and limitations, are available elsewhere [12, 15]. On a practical note, for fiber laser development in which Yb3+ glass plays a central role, it is practically impossible to perform a calculation of the Judd-Ofelt parameters and therefore calculate cross-section values using Judd-Ofelt theory because there is only a 2 F5=2 !

However, because of the low ratio of core to clad diameter, the effective absorption of the pump light is reduced from the core absorption coefficient to the value: aclad ¼ acore Score Sclad ð2:27Þ where Score and Sclad are cross-section areas of the core and cladding, respectively. 005. 55 dB/m, which in turn requires an increase of the fiber length by a factor of 200. One of the well-known techniques that is used to increase absorption of laseractive ions and enhance efficiency of rare-earth ion excitation is co-doping the laser active ion with another ion, using a more suitable pumping spectral location, a high doping concentration, and an efficient pumping excitation transfer to the lasing ion.

5. Typically, the difference between core and cladding is less than 1 %. The core of a fiber is usually doped with laser-active ions. The most widely used laser active ions for fiber laser applications are rare earth ions such as erbium, neodymium, ytterbium, and thulium. Each of the ions has its own absorption bands, from which one can obtain optical gain; in turn, this creates the condition for optical amplification and oscillation. More detailed information on spectroscopic characteristics of the main laser active ions in fibers are given in a later chapter.
