Abstract

The efficiency of photon-echo processes typically lies in the 0.1–1% range. For many photon-echo-based applications suggested in optical storage and all-optical communication the photon-echo output pulses would need to be used as input data to a new photon-echo process. In such cases amplification of the photon-echo output signals would be necessary for an acceptable signal-to-noise ratio to be obtained. We show that a Pr-doped ZBLAN fiber is able to produce significant amplification of photon-echo signals generated in Pr-doped Y2SiO5 at 606  nm.
