Paper Abstract

The nonlinear dynamics of an erbium-doped fiber laser is explained based on a simple model of the ion pairs present in heavily doped fibers. The single-mode laser dynamics is reductible to four nonlinear differential equations. Depending on the ion pair concentration, the pumping level and the photon lifetime in the laser cavity, numerical calculations predicts cw, self-pulsing and sinusoidal dynamics. The regions of these dynamics in the space of the laser parameters are determined.
