Erbium-doped planar optical amplifiers can find numerous applications in photonic integrated circuits operating at 1.5 micrometers . The challenge is to fabricate these devices with high gain, operating at low pump power, and having small overall size. In this paper a review is given of our recent work in the area of Er-doped waveguide materials and amplifiers based on three materials classes: oxide films (Al2O3, Y2O3, SiO2), polymers, and silicon.
