Paper Abstract

Recent development of low-loss, Er-doped silica fibers has made deployment of optical amplifiers in today's optical communication networks a reality. Among several techniques used for fabricating rare-earth doped fibers, the solution-doping technique offers advantages of versatility and ease of use. Detailed descriptions of the preparation procedures, properties of Er-doped fibers and amplifier performance will be presented.
