Paper Abstract

The erbium doped silica fibre amplifier has become almost universal in the 1.53-1.57?m band, due to its high gain and power handling, good linearity, and lack of crosstalk[1]. In this paper, we report results on amplification at wavelengths as long as 1.62?m in the erbium/silica system, greatly extending the existing gain window.
