Abstract
In our work, we develop a numerical model for a fiber ZBLAN host Er3+ laser system at 3 μm. The performed simulation concerning the output power thresholds and efficiencies, for different pumping conditions, as well as time dependencies in a stable cw output power region for the output power and population densities, for a suitable range of parameters variation provide a general method to study the EDFA devices.
