We report an experimental analysis of attenuation and fluorescence (at low-power 750-nm excitation) spectra' transformations in yttria-alumino-silicate fiber doped with Bismuth (Bi), which occur at higher than room, but not exceeding 700 degrees C, temperatures. As well, we address impact of elevating temperature upon the fiber's basic characteristics, such as fluorescence/resonant-absorption saturation, fluorescence lifetime, and pump-light backscattering, given by the presence of Bi-Al related active centers (BACs). The experimental data reveals dramatic impact of heating and high-temperature annealing in excess of 500...550 degrees C on the fiber's state-of-the-art, expressed as significant rise of resonant absorption, enhancement of BACs NIR fluorescence, and reduction of scattering loss. In the meantime, such microscopic parameters of the fiber as BACs fluorescence lifetime and saturation power are found to be kept almost unchanged in its post-annealed state as compared to the pristine one. Possible mechanisms responsible for the phenomena and advantages of utilizing temperature-treated fiber of such type for lasing/amplifying purposes are discussed. (C) 2016 Optical Society of America
