Abstract

An L band superfluorescent fiber source (SFS) with output power of 0.94W is presented, under 4.4W 976nm pump power. The optical conversion efficiency is about 21%. The spectrum covers the broad wavelength range from 1560nm to 1615nm. The high power L band SFS is constructed by a low power L band amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) seed source and a high power erbium-ytterbium co-doped fiber (EYDF) amplifier in double pass forward pumping configuration.
