Paper Abstract

Erbium-doped photonic crystal fiber (EDPCF) is not in the endless single-mode as the refractive index of the core in EDPCF is higher than that of silica cladding. There is a variation between the EDPCF and the conventional PCF. The modified average population inversion iteration method is proposed for simulating the gains and noises of EDPCF amplifiers. The effect of the structural parameters of EDPCF on the cutoff wavelengths, splice loss and the amplification properties is studied in detail by means of the improved average population iterative method combined with the finite element method. According to the design criteria of erbium-doped fiber, the four structural parameters of EDPCF-core radius, the refractive index difference between the core and silica cladding, the relative size of the core and the relative size of air holes are optimized.
