Optimal pumping of erbium-doped-fibre optical amplifiers

Laming, R.I., Reekie, L., Payne, D.N., Scrivener, P.L., Fontana, F. and Righetti, A. (1988) Optimal pumping of erbium-doped-fibre optical amplifiers At ECOC: 14th European Conference on Optical Communication, United Kingdom. 11 - 15 Sep 1988.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


By choosing pump wavelengths which avoid excited-state absorption, efficient, high-gain, erbium-doped fibre amplifiers are possible. Practical pump wavelengths of 532nm and 980nm are identified as optimal, the latter giving a gain as high as 2.2dB/mW of pump.
