Paper Abstract

In this paper, we investigate and compare the characteristics of erbium-doped superfluorescent fiber source (SFS) configurations using different flattening technique in terms of large line-width, high output power, and stable mean wavelength. Not only the intrinsic flattening technique by optimizing the erbium-doped fiber length and pump power, but also the extrinsic flattening methods by adding the fiber Bragg grating-notch filter or an appropriate length of the samarium-doped fiber are experimentally studied in double-pass backward configuration. The design criteria of these SFSs using different flattening techniques and their features are presented and discussed.
