Abstract

Gain measurements are carried out for different lengths of three types of erbium-doped silica fiber with different pump powers at 1480 nm. From these measurements a relation is established for each type of fiber between gain and the attenuation factor of the pump power. This relation is in complete agreement with the one predicted by an analytic model based on overlapping factors, which makes it possible to obtain methods for the experimental characterization of doped fibers.
