Paper Abstract

We present a theoretical study of an erbium-doped optical fiber operating in the superluminescent regime. Experimental results for different pump power levels and fiber length show that the theoretical model could render useful information for predicting parameters such as total output power, spectral bandwidth and optimum fiber length to achieve the superluminescent regime. These types of sources could have direct application in wavelength multiplexed arrangements of fiber sensor, fiber gyroscopes or in general, in any sensors in which a broad wavelength and stable light source is required.
