Abstract

We demonstrate a multicore multidopant fiber which, when pumped with a single pump source around 800nm, emits a more than one octave-spanning fluorescence spectrum ranging from 925 to 2300nm. The fiber preform is manufactured from granulated oxides and the individual cores are doped with five different rare earths, i.e., Nd3+, Yb3+, Er3+, Ho3+, and Tm3+.
