A discussion of the theories, operating characteristics, and current technology of main fiber laser and amplifier devices based on rare-earth-doped silica and fluorozirconate fibers. It describes the principles, designs, and properties of the erbium-doped fiber amplifier and its role as the cornerstone component in optical communication systems. This second edition contains new and revised material reflecting major developments in academia and industry.
Rare earth doped fiber fabrication techniques and physical properties; rare earth doped glasses - optical properties; CW silica fiber lasers; visible fluoride fiber lasers; single-frequency fiber lasers; broadband fiber lasers; Q-switched fiber lasers; mode-locked fiber lasers; rare earth doped fluorozirconate fiber lasers in the infrared; erbium-doped fiber amplifiers - basic physics and characteristics; erbium-doped fiber amplifiers - recent advances; 1.3 micrometre fiber amplifiers.
