Paper Abstract

Development of Er and ErYb doped fibers for high performance Er-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA) and high power fiber lasers is reviewed. Fiber design optimization for applications including wide flat gain spectrum, and high power conversion efficiency are discussed. Major parameters such as fiber gain spectrum consistent and uniformity for volume production are presented. In addition, some of nonlinear effects in EDFA for modern optical communication network will be discussed.
