A novel erbium doped fiber (EDF) designed for high power WDM applications is presented. The fiber design and performance versus numerical aperture and cutoff wavelength are described based on an advanced EDFA model. The optical and spectral characteristics of the high power fiber are shown. Experimental measurement results of this fiber and comparison with typical commercially available EDFs are given. Performance results show that the new EDF is ideal for high power EDFA applications. It features high power conversion efficiency at high pump power, especially with 980nm pumping, extremely flat gain shape, very low splice loss to typical pigtail fibers, and negligible macro-bending loss.
