Paper Abstract

An efficient erbium doped fiber based superfluorescent source, which operates by reflection of the backward ASE in the forward direction, has been studied. Dependence of conversion efficiency on fiber length and amount of reflectance has been investigated. A simple reflecting device such as a Faraday rotating mirror can be used for this purpose so as to increase the conversion efficiency of the reflected forward ASE.
