Paper Abstract

We present a design of an Er-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) with high amplification. The purpose of the device is amplification of low power pulses from laser diodes to powers sufficiently high for investigations of optical fiber nonlinear processes. The optical amplifier consists of two stages. As the first stage we use the reflecting configuration where a signal is amplified twice in the same Er-doped fiber. The second stage works as a high power amplifier. The input pulses have pulse duration of 1 ns - 100 ns, and wavelength 1549.1 nm. The maximum amplification of this design is 50 dB. We obtained the output pulses with maximum power of 50 W. These pulses were used successfully to investigate the NOLM and SRS.
