Paper Abstract

The operation of several singlemode erbium doped polymer waveguide amplifiers was demonstrated. Optical gain of 5 dB was achieved at two different signal laser wavelengths, using a 1.48 micrometers pump. The two polymer host in which gain was demonstrated were gelatin and polystyrene - both prepared in a waveguide structured with high doping levels.
