Paper Abstract

This paper studies and fabricates an integrated double-clad photonic crystal fiber amplifier, which overcomes the shortcomings of space application and makes full use of excellent property of double-clad photonic crystal fiber. In the experiment, the (6 + 1) × 1 end-pump coupler with DC-PCF is fabricated. The six pump fibers are fabricated with 105 / 125μm (NA = 0.22) multi-mode fiber. The signal fiber is made of ordinary single-mode fiber SMF-28. Then we spliced the tapered fiber bundle to photonic crystal fiber. At last, we produce double-clad photonic crystal fiber with an end-cap that are able to withstand high average power and protect the system. We have fabricated an integrated Yb-double-clad photonic crystal fiber amplifier.
