Er3+-Yb3+ and Er3+-doped fibre lasers

Barnes, W.L., Poole, S.B., Townsend, J.E., Reekie, L., Taylor, D.J. and Payne, D.N. (1989) Er3+-Yb3+ and Er3+-doped fibre lasers [in special issue: OFC'89] Journal of Lightwave Technology, 7, (10), pp. 1461-1465. (doi:10.1109/50.39081).

Record type: Article


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.
