Paper Abstract

Stable, broadband, long-wavelength sources are required for accurate fiber sensors such as the fiberoptic gyroscope. The Er-doped superfluorescent fiber source and wavelength-swept fiber laser, which emit near 1 .55 m and can be pumped near 980 nm, are excellent candidates for this application. We discuss the design of such sources, their efficiency, pump source requirements, and the spectra they produce. The spectrum sensitivity to environmental factors such as temperature is also briefly discussed.
