Paper Abstract

Two kinds of configurations of L-band amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) source with two-stage EDF and dual forward pumps are suggested for generating a high power L-band ASE spectrum. The characteristics are theoretically compared in terms of the output power, pumping conversion efficiency, bandwidth, and mean wavelength stability for these two configurations. The EDF length and pump power allotment are also optimized. An L-band ASE source of 76mW output power with about 36.2% pumping conversion efficiency are experimentally obtained.
