Site distributions of Er3+-doped aluminosilicate preforms of standard EDFA were studied by the low temperature Resonant Fluorescence Line Narrowing (RFLN) spectroscopy. Two erbium concentration samples with the same glass base were investigated. At very low erbium concentration, two classes of sites were identified, related to the number of AlO6 octahedral linked by two oxygen edge-sharing to Er3+ in the coordination sphere. As erbium concentration is increased, the high AlO6 coordinated class of sites is smeared out by the optical response of the one AlO6 coordinated class of sites.
