Modeling results for Er3+-doped waveguide amplifiers fabricated by various ion-exchange processes are presented. The gain performance of these devices for 977 nm and 1.48 micrometers pump wavelengths are compared. Measured spectroscopic properties of a phosphate glass with Er3+ concentration of 3.7 X 1020 cm-3 are used throughout the modeling, and waveguide propagation loss of 0.1 dB/cm is used. It is shown that gain coefficients exceeding 5 dB/cm are feasible utilizing optimized ion- exchanged waveguides in this glass. The modeling is performed for glasses doped with erbium only, excluding possible ytterbium codoping.
