Abstract

A symmetrical optical waveguide amplifier fabricated in erbium/ytterbium co-doped phosphate glass using direct femtosecond laser writing is demonstrated. The waveguides are manufactured using 800 nm radiation from a femtosecond laser operating at a 1 kHz repetition rate, with sub 120 fs pulse duration. Peak internal gain of 2 dB is obtained at 1535 nm.
