Abstract

An optical amplifier consisting of an erbium-doped germanosilicate fibre optically pumped at 532nm is described. Negligible excited-state absorption at 532nm allows efficient pumping, enabling a gain of 34dB at 1536nm to be obtained for only 25mW of pump power. Since the early demonstrations of optical amplification in rare-earth-doped fibres, erbium-doped fibres have generated much interest as optical amplifiers in the third telecommunications window around 1.55µm.
