Paper Abstract

High-gain (G > 20 dB) multimode erbium-doped amplifiers pumped at 980-nm using a Ti:Sapphire laser and at 1485-nm using a laser+amplifier photonic integrated circuit have been demonstrated. Low amplifier noise power is achieved by coupling pump light into a limited number of fiber modes.
