J.D.Minelly, Z.J.Chen, R.I.Laming and J.E.Caplen


We report for the first time efficient operation of a cladding pumped Er3+ fibre configured in both fibre laser and fibre amplifier form. The fibre was of a double clad design compatible with beamshaped 980nm broadstripe pump lasers An efficiency in excess of 40% has been achieved.
