Performance of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers
D.N.Payne, R.I.Laming and G.C.Cowle
The field of rare-earth-doped fibre lasers and amplifiers has expanded rapidly in recent years and there are now numerous groups working actively in the area. A variety of glass hosts, dopants and pump sources have been used, with the goal of achieving low-threshold, diode-laser-pumped operation of fibre lasers and amplifiers, particularly those operating in either the second or third telecommunication windows.
