Paper Abstract

We present a theoretical and experimental work of an erbium-doped fiber optic source operating in the superluminescent regime. Experimental results for different pump power levels and different fiber length show that the theoretical model could render useful information for predicting parameters such as total output power, spectral bandwidth and optimum fiber length for a given pump power to achieve the superluminiscent regime. These types of sources could have direct application in wavelength multiplexed arrangements of fiber sensors, fiber gyroscopes or in general, in any sensors in which a broad wavelength and stable light source is required.
