Abstract

Recently, 978nm diode pumping of an erbium doped fiber amplifier has produced the highest gain coefficient of 3.9 dB/mW. However, pumping with 1.48-µm laser diodes: is also important because of the more mature technology for fabricating high power InGaAsP laser diodes. High optical gain is generally desirable, but a low noise figure is also important for use as a preamplifier. To optimize the ampiifier performance and compare with 978-nm pumping, we measured the gain and noise characteristic of an erbium doped fiber amplifier for pump wavelengths between 1460 and 1510 nm
