Abstract

This paper presents a novel molten core approach – post-feeding molten core approach – to draw Nd:YAG ceramic derived silica fibers. This technique can effectively mitigate the diffusion of silica from cladding. The diffused silica concentrations decrease from 73.76 wt.% to 45.08 wt.% at the center of cores, by using the post-feeding method. Micro-Raman spectra indicate that the core materials of those fibers are amorphous and maintain an environment similar to YAG glass. The output laser power and slope efficiency are greatly improved. The enhanced performance of this approach shows that it has considerable potential in fabricating hybrid fibers.

Fig. 1 Core composition profiles of (a) C11 and (b) C22 drawn by a conventional molten core approach; (c) P32 derived from 1.5 mm granules; and (d) P16 derived from cylindrical particles measuring ϕ 0.5 × 3 mm in a post-feeding molten core approach. The insets show the polished end faces of those fibers.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Normalized Raman spectra of Nd:YAG, fiber cores and silica cladding; the Raman spectrum of Nd:YAG is multiplied by 0.2. The area near 800 cm−1 is expanded in the inset for clarity. The main bands (R, D1, D2, ω1, ω2, ω3) of silica are marked. Qn denotes the vibration frequencies of silica species.
