Abstract

The efficiency of the dynamic population gratings recorded in highly doped erbium fibers has been studied. We find that the grating response increases with optical density, although the presence of erbium ion pairs in fibers with ion density of the order of 6.3×1025m3 degrades the grating efficiency. The experimental results have been reproduced including inhomogeneous upconversion processes in the nonlinear coupled-wave equations.
