Paper Abstract

Information capacity for unsaturated gain regime is proposed as new figure of merit for host glasses for Er-doped fiber amplifiers that are considered as components of optical communication systems. Silicate and phosphate glasses are proved to have the highest total information capacity over the S-, C- and L-bands. In wideband communication systems tellurite glasses are shown to have the maximum capacity.
