First demonstration of a 2µm few-mode TDFA for mode division multiplexing

First demonstration of a 2µm few-mode TDFA for mode division multiplexing
First demonstration of a 2µm few-mode TDFA for mode division multiplexing
We report the first demonstration of an inline few-mode thulium doped fiber amplifier (TDFA) operating at 2µm for mode division multiplexed transmission. Similar gain and noise figure performance for both the LP01 and LP11 modes are obtained in a cladding pumped 2-mode group TDFA. A maximum gain of 18.3dB was measured at 1970nm with a 3dB gain bandwidth of 75nm while the average noise figure was measured to be between 7 and 8dB for wavelengths longer than 1970nm.

Abstract

We report the first demonstration of an inline few-mode thulium doped fiber amplifier (TDFA) operating at 2µm for mode division multiplexed transmission. Similar gain and noise figure performance for both the LP01 and LP11 modes are obtained in a cladding pumped 2-mode group TDFA. A maximum gain of 18.3dB was measured at 1970nm with a 3dB gain bandwidth of 75nm while the average noise figure was measured to be between 7 and 8dB for wavelengths longer than 1970nm.
