1 November 1993 High-bandwidth organic dye-doped polymer optical fiber amplifier
Author Affiliations +
An organic dye (Rhodamine B) doped polymer optical fiber amplifier (POFA) of the graded- index (GI) type was successfully prepared for the first time. The GI-POFA of only 500 mm in length gave 27 dB in gain at 591 nm of signal wavelength. Additionally, absorption cross section and emission cross section of Rhodamine B in PMMA matrix were estimated, which were required to analyze amplification mechanism in the POFA.
