Absorption and stimulated emission coefficients for a pump power at 1480 nm are determined experimentally for three types of erbium-doped silica fiber. Starting from these coefficients and using previous gain measurements, we calculate absorption and stimulated emission cross sections of the erbium laser transition. The results obtained are in good… CONTINUE READING
