High Reliability 49 dB Gain, 13W PM Fiber Amplifier at 1550 nm with 30 dB PER and Record Efficiency

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We present a single-mode, polarization-maintaining, Er/Yb-codoped cladding-pumped amplifier with up to 49 dB of gain, 13W output power, a 30 dB polarization-extinction ratio, 12.9% electrical to optical conversion efficiency, and 42% optical-optical power-stage fiber slope efficiency. This is the most efficient highest PER HPOA ever reported near 1550 nm. The HPOA was built using all fiber-based components qualifiable for long missions in harsh environments.
