Abstract

Basic characteristics of organic-dye doped polymer optical fibers (DPOFs) are demonstrated. The devices contain laser dye, such as Rhodamine 6G (R6G) and Rhodamine B (RB) in the core region. Firstly, amplification characteristics of DPOF amplifiers (PO-FAs) excited by a pulse-operated, doubled Nd:YAG laser are demonstrated, e.g., a 250 mm-length of RB-POFA gives 1 kW (30 dB) of amplified signal at 591 nm. Next, an all solid state system of RB DPOF laser (POFL) is discussed by numerical simulation and the experimental result of high-power amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) by strong excitation of DPOF is shown.
