BACKGROUND: Oral pigmentation, especially in the gingiva poses esthetic problems. Laser therapy has been widely used for cosmetic therapy in dentistry. The aim of the present study was to systematically review the efficacy of surgical laser therapy (SLT) in the management of oral pigmented lesions (OPL). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The addressed focused question was "Is SLT effective in the management of OPL?" Databases (MEDLINE via PubMed; EMBASE; Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and Cochrane Oral Health Group Trials Register databases) were searched from 1970 up to and including February 2017...

Papular acne scars are skin-colored or hypopigmented, soft and elevated lesions of the chin and trunk. Papular scars are one of the most difficult acne scars to treat. Herein, we reported two patients with papular acne scars on the chin that were successfully treated by the pinhole method using an Erbium (ER):YAG laser. Good cosmetic results were achieved in both patients. The side effects included mild, intra-, and post-procedural pain and erythema that resolved spontaneously within 2 weeks. The pinhole method with an Er:YAG laser could potentially be used as a safe and effective treatment for papular acne scars...

Erbium (Er) (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 wt%)-doped CaZrO3 nanophosphors were synthesized by the sol-gel method using poly(vinyl alcohol) as the chelating agent. Their structural and photoluminescence properties were studied using X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive spectroscopy (FESEM-EDS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), photoluminescence and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The XRD patterns of the samples confirm that nanoscale crystallite sizes...

In an optical interconnect circuit, microring resonators (MRRs) are commonly used in wavelength division multiplexing systems. To make the MRR and laser synchronized, the resonance wavelength of the MRR needs to be thermally controlled, and the power consumption becomes significant with a high-channel count. Here, we demonstrate an athermally synchronized rare-earth-doped laser and MRR. The laser comprises a Si3N4 based cavity covered with erbium-doped Al2O3 to provide gain. The low thermo-optic coefficient of Al2O3 and Si3N4 and the comparable thermal shift of the effective index in the laser and microring cross-sections enable lasing and resonance wavelength synchronization over a wide range of temperatures...

Erbium lasers can provide effective and minimally invasive caries removal in children. The bonding phase remains a critic step as well as the choice of material. Glass ionomers exhibits lower bonding properties in laser irradiated teeth compared to the conventional method or to composite and resin modified glass ionomer. Laser can also provide effective decontamination and coagulation effects in vital and non vital pulp therapy of primary teeth, improving and simplifying the cleaning and disinfecting steps.

We report, to the best of our knowledge, the first monolithic erbium-doped fluorozirconate fiber laser bounded by two fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) operating at 3.55 μm. Its output power and total optical efficiency are 5.6 W and 26.4% respectively, the highest ever achieved at this wavelength from a fiber laser. The monolithic design of the cavity also increases its stability and prevents fiber tip damage which has limited prior demonstrations to a maximum output power of 1.5 W. This Letter also studies the performances of the laser cavity for various output FBG reflectivities and presents numerical modeling results exhibiting remarkable agreement with experimental results...

Turbulence is a challenging feature common to a wide range of complex phenomena. Random fibre lasers are a special class of lasers in which the feedback arises from multiple scattering in a one-dimensional disordered cavity-less medium. Here we report on statistical signatures of turbulence in the distribution of intensity fluctuations in a continuous-wave-pumped erbium-based random fibre laser, with random Bragg grating scatterers. The distribution of intensity fluctuations in an extensive data set exhibits three qualitatively distinct behaviours: a Gaussian regime below threshold, a mixture of two distributions with exponentially decaying tails near the threshold and a mixture of distributions with stretched-exponential tails above threshold...

Metallofullerenes with two erbium atoms encapsulated in IPR C82 cage isomers Cs-6 (I), C2v-9 (II), and C3v-8 (III) were investigated using density functional theory. The calculations suggest that erbium atoms assume a trivalent state with Er (4f(11)) valence electronic configuration in Er2@C82 and Er2C2@C82, where two electrons (6s(2)) per Er atom are transferred to the cage carrying four negative charges (C82(4-)), while the third electron is promoted from the 4f to the 5d shell, becoming involved in covalent bonding to near atoms...

Hemostatic disorders are typically associated with prolonged bleeding after or during surgical procedures. The aim of the study was to increase the efficiency of oral surgery in these patients using erbium laser. Selected 46 patients receiving oral surgery were randomly divided in 2 groups: 43 patients with thrombocytopenia, trombocytemia and other platelet disorders treated with erbium laser and a control group of 43 patients without concomitant pathology determined for conventional surgical treatment. No postoperative bleeding was seen in group 1...

An optimized therapeutic regimen involving a non-ablative fractionated laser or radiofrequency therapy for acne scars has not yet been established. To evaluate whether the combination of a non-ablative fractional laser (NAF) and fractional micro-needling radiofrequency (FMR) has clinical advantages for the treatment of atrophic acne scars compared with NAF alone, a 16-week prospective, randomized split-face study was performed. Each facial side of a patient was treated with 3 sessions of either NAF with FMR or NAF alone, with a 4-week interval between each session...

We present the first ferromagnetically-coupled Er(3+) complex with linked, high-anisotropy Er-COT (COT(2-) = cyclooctatetraene dianion) subunits. The dinuclear complex, [Er(μ2-Cl)(COT)(THF)]2, demonstrates single-molecule magnetism with a single, zero-field magnetization relaxation barrier of Ueff = 113 cm(-1). This system offers evidence that anisotropy can be preserved in the presence of ferromagnetic linking of the Er-COT subunits, providing a rational means to build strong molecular magnets of tunable dimensionality...

A new class of lanthanide-doped upconversion nanoparticles are presented that are without Yb(3+) or Nd(3+) sensitizers in the host lattice. In erbium-enriched core-shell NaErF4 :Tm (0.5 mol %)@NaYF4 nanoparticles, a high degree of energy migration between Er(3+) ions occurs to suppress the effect of concentration quenching upon surface coating. Unlike the conventional Yb(3+) -Er(3+) system, the Er(3+) ion can serve as both the sensitizer and activator to enable an effective upconversion process. Importantly, an appropriate doping of Tm(3+) has been demonstrated to further enhance upconversion luminescence through energy trapping...

For the first time, we demonstrated the fabrication of mechanically exfoliated molybdenum disulfide (MoS<sub>2</sub>) samples deposited onto a D-shaped optical fiber. The MoS<sub>2</sub> exfoliated flakes were deposited onto a stacked of 1.2 µm PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) and 300 nm PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) layers and then transferred directly onto a side polished surface of D-shaped optical fiber with polishing length of 17 mm and no distance from the fiber core. The sample exhibited a high polarization performance as a polarizer with relative polarization extinction ratio of 97...

Active phase locking of a multicore erbium-doped fiber amplifier is demonstrated for 180 ns narrow-linewidth pulses at 1545 nm. A spatial light modulator is used at the input of the amplifier to control the optical phase of 7 beams injected in the hexagonally-arranged cores, ensuring efficient combining through a SPGD algorithm. At the output, combining is performed using a diffractive optical element. This experiment establishes multicore amplifiers as a promising way to scale the energy of Brillouin-limited pulsed amplifiers for LIDAR applications...

Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) dynamic strain sensors using both an erbium-based fiber ring laser configuration and a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA)-based linear laser configuration are investigated theoretically and experimentally. Fiber laser models are first presented to analyze the output characteristics of both fiber laser configurations when the FBG sensor is subjected to dynamic strains at high frequencies. Due to differences in the transition times of erbium and the semiconductor (InP/InGaAsP), erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA)- and RSOA-based fiber lasers exhibit different responses and regimes of stability when the FBG is subjected to dynamic strains...

We demonstrate monolithic integration of a wavelength division multiplexed light source for silicon photonics by a cascade of erbium-doped aluminum oxide (Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>:Er<sup>3+</sup>) distributed feedback (DFB) lasers. Four DFB lasers with uniformly spaced emission wavelengths are cascaded in a series to simultaneously operate with no additional tuning required. A total output power of -10.9  dBm is obtained from the four DFBs with an average side mode suppression ratio of 38...

Nanosecond passive Q-switching generation from an all-fiber erbium-doped laser with a UV inscribed 45° tilted fiber grating (TFG) is systematically demonstrated. The 45° TFG is employed as a polarizer together with two polarization controllers (PCs) to realize nonlinear polarization rotation (NPR). Because of the NPR effect, stable Q-switched pulses with an average output power of 17.5 mW, a single pulse energy of 72.7 nJ, a repetition rate of 241 kHz, a pulse width of 466 ns, and a signal to noise ratio (SNR) of 58...
