Description/Abstract

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
