Paper Abstract

We present an experimental work of a broadband amplifier centered at 1550 nm using erbium doped fiber and ytterbium doped fiber pumped at 976.8 nm. The preliminary experimental results show that the gain is practically independent of the state of polarization of the pump and the signal. We propose that the Ytterbium doped fiber could be used as an option to filter the pump power. These amplifiers are based on the telecommunications amplifiers and could have direct application in wavelength multiplexed arrangements of fiber sensors, like a fiber-optic acoustic sensor or in general, in any sensors in which a broadband source and stable light source is required.
