1 February 1992 Rare-earth-doped fluoride fibers for optical amplification (Invited Paper)
Author Affiliations +
Rare earth-doped fluorozirconate fibres show potential as optical amplifiers from the visible to the mid IR. This paper reviews the current status of their application in telecommunications, concentrating on Tm and Er-dopants for the 1st window and Nd and Pr-dopants for the 2nd window. A 1300 nm system operating at 2.5 Gbits/s using a Pr-doped fibre amplifier is described.
