Polymer-Optical-Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers Doped with Organic Dyes

By Joseba Zubia, M. Asunción Illarramendi, Jon Arrue, Felipe Jiménez and Igor Ayesta


Polymer optical fibers (POFs) doped with organic dyes can be used to make efficient lasers and amplifiers due to the high gains achievable in short distances. This paper analyzes the peculiarities of light amplification in POFs through some experimental data and a computational model capable of carrying out both power and spectral analyses. We investigate the emission spectral shifts and widths and on the optimum signal wavelength and pump power as functions of the fiber length, the fiber numerical aperture and the radial distribution of the dopant. Analyses for both step-index and graded-index POFs have been done
