We have demonstrated the integration of supporting lasing at 1.88 mm for enhancing the gain in a thulium doped ZBLAN amplifier. The laser ring cavity has been created in order to reduce the bottleneck effect caused by the self-terminating nature of the amplifying transition. Two different types of fibre geometry and pumping scheme have been tested and the performance has been compared with a numerical model of the amplifier.
