Rare-earth-doped fiber designs for superluminescent sources

Paper Abstract

The use of rare-earth-doped fiber section working in amplified spontaneous emission regime for different emission wavelengths is analyzed theoretically. From simulation results, the design of all-fiber superluminescent sources employing different rare earths as dopants for new optical windows and different applications is proposed. Results on different pump and signal powers in forward and backward propagation direction with respect to fiber length are presented.
