Short pulse generation from optical circuits based on erbium doped fibre amplifiers.
Institute of Physics Meeting on Miniaturised Waveguide Devices,
Recent advancements in the field of doped fibre fabrication using rare earth ions e.g. Nd3+, Er3+ have lead to the development of a large number of active all-fibre devices. Of particular note is the development of the erbium-doped fibre amplifier which is already leading to revolutionary developments for current telecommunication systems. As a result of the applications to the telecommunication industry a large number of commercial fiber components e.g. couplers, isolators, filters, modulators, gratings etc have been developed for use at 1.55 µm making the construction of complex, all-fibre, active functional circuits based on erbium doped-fibres a reality
