Abstract

An erbium-doped superfluorescent fiber source utilizing a double-pass backward configuration is analyzed when a polarizer is inserted into an erbium-doped fiber to obtain polarized output light. Such a polarized configuration is simulated and experimentally confirmed to have the following characteristics: high polarization power conversion efficiency, pump-power-independent mean-wavelength operation, and low sensitivity to polarizer insertion loss.
