"Highly efficient Erbium-doped fiber-laser amplifiers" Vartan Ter-Mikirtychev: Founder, Verlas, Inc.
Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers are widely used in fiber optic communication technology. This talk will review recent developments in this technology, and describe new results on the development of highly efficient, resonantly-pumped amplifiers. I will report on the highest optical-to-optical efficiency (85%) ever demonstrated for an Erbium-doped fiber amplifier. This result opens up new possibilities in the development of high-power, eye-safe fiber amplifiers.
