This text examines the current technology of rare earth doped fibres, the laser sources and amplifiers made with these fibres, and fibre communication systems incorporating erbium-doped fibre amplifiers. The book: covers fibre fabrication techniques, basic spectroscopy and optical properties of rare earth in glasses and analytical models of fibre lasers and amplifiers; describes the main passive fibre components used in the fabrication of more elaborate fibre laser devices and systems; discusses the properties of Nd-doped and Er-doped fibre lasers operated as continuous wave, Q-switched and mode-locked sources; reviews the tunability and single frequency operation of fibre laser sources, as well as broadband fibre sources; includes an extensive review of fibre lasers based on rare earth doped fluoride fibres; and treats the main fibre-based systems using erbium-doped fibre amplifiers that have been demonstrated, including long-haul experimental communication systems and local area networks for TV and computers. The text contains over 900 equations, figures and tables.

Praise for the first edition. . . . . .unreservedly recommend[ed]. It is written by acknowledged experts in the field covering everything from basic physics to system applications. Each chapter can be read independently and in application to a postgraduate or final year undergraduate teaching course this is a bonus. There is something in the text for everyone including the expert. . ..thoroughly recommend that anyone with the slightest interest in fiber lasers or amplifiers have this book readily to hand.
. . .sufficiently exhaustive to serve as a source of reference for experienced practitioners. . ..recommend this volume not only for personal use, but also to all libraries in universities and companies.
The book is suitable for beginners. . ..serve[s] as an excellent reference tool for experienced workers in the field.
