Abstract

The results of amplifying either radially or azimuthally polarized light with a fiber amplifier are presented. Experimental results reveal that more than 85% polarization purity can be retained at the output even with 40 dB amplification and that efficient conversion of the amplified light to linear polarization can be obtained.
