Paper Abstract

Optical devices made by using rare-earth doped fluoride fibers are now commercially available, and have been widely used, for example, as test sources to evaluate WDM components. We will review these fiber-based devices, which include ASE (Amplified Spontaneous Emission) light sources and optical fiber amplifiers in the S, C, and L bands and fiber lasers in the near infrared region.
