Abstract

We report a 30 cm long Nd3+/Yb3+ co-doped silica glass fiber amplifier with well-maintained broadband gain through simultaneous dual-laser pumping at 808 and 975 nm. By controlling the ratio of the pump power at 975 (P975) and 808 nm (P808), the emission band of Yb3+/Nd3+ and the energy transfer efficiency of Nd3+Yb3+ can be well controlled; thus, a tunable broadband and flat gain in the range of 1036–1080 nm are obtained. The theoretical calculation of the energy transfer efficiency of Nd3+Yb3+ with dual-laser pumping of 808 and 975 nm explains well the mechanism of broadband and flat gain formation in the Nd3+/Yb3+ co-doped fiber.
