Abstract: As data traffic continues to rapidly increase, high transmission capacity will be required for fiber optic communications systems. New technologies have been developed to ensure good quality of information transfer. In this context, all-fiber optical components play an important role in reducing the propagation, insertion and reflection losses in an optical transmission link. The Faraday rotator is designed for useas an insulator in order to minimize parasitic back reflections in high power lasers. It is developed based on singlemode fiber for wavelengths less than 1μm. The motivation of this work is to explore new vitreous matrices with a large magneto-optical response in the third telecommunications window (1.55 μm) and to study the possibility of having "few mode" optical fibers. In this sens, highly doped terbium glasses are considered the best candidates. However, the solubility of terbium ions in silica glass fibers is limited to 27%, then the exploration for other glass compositions is necessary. In this work, several glass compositions have been explored in different matrices of silica, phosphate and fluoride. Glasses containing up to 30% mol of terbium oxyde in a silica glass and up to 40% by mol of terbium fluoride in fluoride glasses have been obtained in order to produce a fiber with two progagation modes at 1.55 μm. Thermal, optical and Verdet constant measurements were made on all the glasses synthesized according to their concentration in order to compare the magneto-optical transmission efficiency of different types of matrices.
