In this work we analyze experimentally and theoretically the properties of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) in a rhodamine-6Gdoped graded-index polymer optical fiber. A theoretical model based on the laser rate equations describes the ASE features successfully. The dependence of the ASE threshold and efficiency on fiber length is analyzed in detail.
