Laming, R.I., Farries, M.C., Morkel, P.R., Reekie, L., Payne, D.N., Scrivener, P.L., Fontana, F. and Righetti, A. (1989) Efficient pump wavelengths of the erbium-doped-fibre optical amplifier Electronics Letters, 25, (1), pp. 12-14. (doi:10.1049/el:19890009).

Record type: Article


By choosing pump wavelengths at which excited state absorption does not occur, efficient high gain operation of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers is possible. Practical pump wavelengths of 532nm and 980nm are identified as optimal, giving gains as high as 1.35 dB/mW and 2.2 dB/mW of pump at the two wavelengths, respectively.
