Paper Abstract

The telecommunications industry and sensors require fast methods for engineering fiber lasers. In this work, using lowoptical- power flat-top pulse excitations, it has been possible to determine both the attenuation coefficients and the intrinsic saturation powers of doped single-mode fibers at 980 and 1550 nm. Laser systems have been projected for which the optimal fiber length and output power have been determined as a function of the input power. Ring and linear laser cavities have been set up, and the characteristics of the output laser have been obtained and compared with the theoretical predictions based on the measured parameters.
