Paper Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the 1480nm pumped L-band erbium doped fiber amplified spontaneous emission source of three major configurations: one-stage double-pass forward pump configuration, two-stage with C-band ASE injection configuration, one-stage double- pass bi-directional pump configuration. The characteristics are compared in terms of the output power, pumping conversion efficiency, bandwidth, and mean wavelength stability. It is shown that the one- stage double-pass bi-directional pump configuration has a better performance than the other two configurations.
