Single-mode fibre lasers operating at ~1.57µm are described. Output powers of >2 mW are reported for laser diode pumped operation. Direct comparison is made between fibre lasers employing sensitized erbium (Er3+ and Yb3+) and erbium on its own. The performance of Er3+-Yb3+ fibre lasers is then analyzed in more detail as a function of fibre length. Both CW and Q-switched operation are studied and the results obtained demonstrate that practical sources at 1.5µm are available from diode pumped Er3+-Yb3+ systems.
