S-band Tm3+/Yb3+ codoped tellurite fiber amplifier pumped by a 980nm laser diode is proposed and modeled taking into consideration of the energy transfer process from Yb3+ to Tm3+ and the laser cavity inside a codoped fiber amplifier. S-band spectral gains for the codoped fiber amplifiers are investigated. The results show that considerable gain improvement can be achieved by constructing 1050nm laser cavity inside the amplifier.
