Abstract
A Dy3+-doped ZBLAN fiber amplifier based on an in-band pumped configuration is designed and optimized via an evolutionary approach. In the proposed model, the rate equations are coupled with the power propagation equations for the pump and signal beams. The complete amplifier model allows the definition of the fitness function to be optimized. Realistic values for optical and spectroscopic parameters are considered. For a fiber with dopant concentration of 2000 ppm, by employing an input pump power of 1 W at 2.72 μm wavelength, an optical gain of about 15.56 dB at 2.95 μm wavelength is obtained.
